[ARCHIVED] RAD (Women's Self-Defense) Training Announcement

The Lafayette Police Department is providing a R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense) class for women this month. The class is hosted at the Lafayette Police Training Center, 1301 South St, and will be held April 23rd and 24th from 9am to 3pm each day.

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 both sessions. Minimum age is 13 years old.
