What is Rape Aggression Defense?
RAD is a Female Self-Defense program designed to combat against sexual assaults and rapes. This program is designed for the average woman who chooses to use the option of physical self-defense. This program is available to all female students, faculty, and staff employees (full or part-time).
RAD is taught by certified instructors and is endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators. The course is physically and mentally challenging, however, it is also taught in a fun and friendly atmosphere. The following areas are covered in class:
- Awareness - Awareness and risk reduction discussion covering such issues as home and personal safety, date rape, carrying mace and/or other weapons.
- Technique - Self-defense techniques that can be used in a variety of confrontational situations.
- Simulation - Realistic simulation scenarios where officers are dressed in padded equipment to give class participants the opportunity to practice their techniques.
