We apply controlling chaos techniques to select the desired sequence of impacts in a map that captures universal properties of impact oscillators near grazing. For instance, we can choose the period and then stabilize an unstable periodic orbit with, say, one impact per period involved in the grazing bifurcations that take place in the system.
