[ARCHIVED] Upcoming RAD Class for Women

The Lafayette Police Department is providing a R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense) class for women next month. The class is hosted at the Lafayette Police Training Center, 1301 South St, and will be held March 4th and 5th from 8am to 2pm 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.

To register, go to The cost for this program is $10 for the class materials. Seating is limited to 30 people.
