Miller School Campus: Basic Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) course to be offered

Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) is a 12-hour, in-depth, internationally recognized program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The comprehensive course begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and risk avoidance before progressing into detailed hands-on defense training, which includes a final simulation exercise. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program but rather a physical defense program designed specifically for women to utilize in the most common types of physical-attack situations.
