DUE TO CUTBACKS IN COMMUNITY POLICING GRANT FUNDING R.A.D. CLASSES WILL BE OFFERED ON A MORE LIMITED BASIS IN THE FUTURE

  • R.A.D. is an internationally taught realistic hands on self defense training class specifically designed for women (12-16 hours)
  • The program teaches and emphasizes awareness, avoidance and physical self defense with the tools we possess with us at all times (hands, feet, elbows, knees, head, etc…)
  • All sizes and physical capabilities are welcome (ages 14, 15 or 16; parental waiver will be needed – 13 and under is too young for this class)

  • Manuals are provided as are water and light snacks
  • Casual exercise clothing and an aerobic type of sneaker preferred
