Rape Aggression Defense (RAD)


Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) is a self-defense course for women. The training focuses on practical, simple techniques that can be readily applied by women when confronted by an attacker. Students receive instruction on such topics as risk reduction strategies, recognizing common indicators that may signal a potential attack, the pros and cons of defensive weaponry items and simple but effective self-defense techniques. RAD is currently being taught at over 400 college campuses nationwide. This free 12-hour course is typically broken down into four 3-hour sessions over a two week period.

For more information on upcoming classes, contact Master Officer Alan McDowell at 757-603-6026.
