Self-defense program for women offered
Posted October 27, 2008; 10:22 a.m.
The University's Department of Public Safety is offering a free program of self-defense tactics and techniques for women on four evenings in November.
The Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) System is scheduled for 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Mondays, Nov. 3, 10, 17 and 24, in the Zanfrini Room on the C-level of Jadwin Gymnasium.
This comprehensive course for women begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. It is not a martial arts program.
Course leaders are nationally certified R.A.D. instructors, who provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. The manual outlines the entire physical defense program for reference and continuous personal growth.
More information, is available online. Registration is required and is available on this website or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Space is limited. Another session will be offered on Mondays, Feb. 2, 9, 16 and 23.
