Our Instructional Objective:
Awareness & Risk Reduction We teach risk reduction techniques that can be used at home, work, out and about, at your vehicle, as well while traveling or dating. We teach the importance of being aware of your surroundings and how that alone can be a deterrent to aggression. Self defense: We teach the principles of good defense and striking so women have several options when confronted by an aggressor. Women experience how to deliver an effective strike to vulnerable areas of the aggressor. The basic self-defense tactics are easy to learn, retain, and employ. Simulation: Women are then given the opportunity to experience an attack in a controlled setting. Instructors wear protective equipment that allows women to use the trained techniques at full power. The R.A.D. program is a 12-hour course usually divided over a two or three day period. Contact the Security Office at 269-4600 for more information or you can visit the R.A.D national website at: www.rad-systems.com
