Classes will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. Nov. 2, 9, and 16. Classes are taught in the in LCH A225 and A104, the combative rooms located in the gym.
The class is called Rape Aggression Defense System, also known as R.A.D, which teaches women realistic self-defense tactics and techniques.
R.A.D. is a hands-on program that will help enhance knowledge and awareness, as well as provide tips on prevention, risk-reduction and avoidance.
R.A.D, which is taught by certified independent instructors, is a program that is taught on many college campuses by police departments.
According to Rad-system.com, “R.A.D. is the only self-defense program ever endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), National Academy of Defense Education, the National Self- Defense Institute (NSDI) and Redman Training Gear.”
