[ARCHIVED] Women's Self Defense Class

The Lafayette Police Department will be offering a RAD (Rape Aggression Defense) class this month, beginning February 29th. The class runs over three days (2/29, 3/1, and 3/2) from 6pm to 10pm each night. The cost of the class is $10 per person which covers the cost of class materials. To sign up, please follow the link

Course description:

The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth, and is the key to our free lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates.

This is a 12 hour program and attendance is required for all three sessions (each 4 hours long 6-10pm). Minimum age is 13 years old.
