RAD Training
Rape Aggression Defense (RAD)

The University Police Department has scheduled new classes of Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) for the Fall 2012 semester. Sign up now for this essential class in women's self defense.

The RAD system is a program of realistic self defense tactics and techniques for women. RAD is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, and progresses to basic, hands-on defense training.

RAD is not a Martial Arts program. The course is taught by UPD's nationally certified RAD instructors. Each student is provided with a workbook/reference manual. The manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program and can be used as a reference and continuous personal growth. In addition, RAD graduates are offered a free lifetime return and practice policy.

The RAD class is taught over a two day period which culminates in a "hands on" controlled scenario simulation. This empowering 12 hour course is designed to allow the application and prevention skills as well as self defense tactics. Wear comfortable clothing and tennis shoes.

Register in the Parking Services window in the lobby of the University Police Department Building on the corner of South Seventh and East San Salvador Streets. Registration is open Mondays-Thursdays, 7:15am-5:00pm, and Fridays, 7:15am-4:30pm. You may contact Sergeant Jenny Gaxiola for questions or more information.
