Overview

The 1Touch™ Project is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 1Touch™ explores participant’s hidden assumptions regarding their own disability -- their personal perception of their blindness and the otherwise unchallenged insecurities built upon that perception. Learning these techniques has proven highly effective in the development of: independence, self-confidence, spatial orientation, mobility and dexterity, and tactile sensitivity.

The self-defense techniques are fully accessible and designed for practicality. There is no age limit, no physical strength needed or prior martial arts background necessary. 1Touch™ works with male/female, children, seniors, veterans, professionals in blindness education, sighted, people who are visually impaired/Blind, deaf deaf/blind and people with multiple disabilities.

The process of the practice is one of perception, confidence, transformation, rehabilitation, communication, and personal development and it happens to be great fun!

1Touch™ is a self-development course that is taught through hands-on instruction as a certificated program. For the self-defense aspect of training there are no belts or ranks – participants either are a 1Touch™ Coach, Advanced Coach, or a student.

The course can be taught anywhere and requires no equipment.

1Touch™ is perhaps the only internationally recognized organization that provides specifically designed programs for those people unable or unwilling to attend general self-defense classes. The research into the requirements of the blind and disabled communities’ needs are the defining approach of 1Touch™. As such, it delivers a myriad of secondary benefits to the community, many of which are valuable to the society as a whole.

Volunteer at 1Touch

“Individuals who are blind or visually impaired are physically vulnerable in public places. This can lead to fear, and fear can often limit exposure to vocational, social and self-determinated experiences. 1Touch is a methodical and instructive way to teach individuals with visual impairments self-defense skills. Through 1Touch, they gain safety skills, confidence and independent movement in the community without fear.”

Lauren J. Lieberman Ph.D.
Co-Director of The Institute of Movement Studies for Individuals with Visual Impairments Distinguished Service Professor
