RAD (Rape Aggression Defense) 12 Hour Self-Defense Course for Women
July 14, 15, 21, 22, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Parham Road Campus, Georgiadis Hall Gallery
Reynolds Department of Police will be hosting the R.A.D Basic Physical Defense Program for Women this summer. Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) training is a comprehensive, women-only course that teaches awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and risk avoidance, progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. will be offered at the Parham Rd Campus (Georgiadis Hall Gallery) this summer.
The Basic Self-Defense for Women program is a 12-hour course. Participants spend the first three hours in the classroom for open discussion and lecture. The next six hours demonstrate physical techniques, which include stances, strikes, kicks and pressure points, as well as techniques to break away from wrist grabs, bear hugs and chokeholds. The final three hours of RAD feature simulation (optional), in which a certified RAD “aggressor” acts out real-life scenarios, and participants defend themselves using the techniques learned in class. Attendance for the entire course is required in order to participate. Reynolds Police employees have been certified through RAD Systems, Inc. RAD classes are offered several times each semester, and occasionally in the summer months. The class is free to Reynolds students, faculty, and staff. Participants must be at least 18 years of age to participate.
