Safety-conscious women on and around the MTSU campus can have a RAD summer — and future — by taking the MTSU Police Department’s newest five-week session of free Rape Aggression Defense classes.
This summer 2016 course is set each Monday beginning June 6 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and is open to all female MTSU students, faculty and staff, along with the general public.
The course concludes Tuesday, July 5, after one Monday off for the July 4 holiday. Organizers say that participants must attend all five sessions to ensure that they receive the complete training.
The Rape Aggression Defense System is a comprehensive program of realistic defense tactics and techniques for women that emphasizes awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance and progresses to the basics of hands-on defense training.
Nationally certified RAD instructors teach MTSU’s free course.
The program is designed for women age 13 and older with no previous experience or background in physical skills training. Instructors will work to accommodate any physical impairment a participant may have.
Class size is limited for this new summer course, so the MTSU Police Department is encouraging interested parties to enroll as soon as possible.
Participants should email their names and contact information to [email protected]. Instructors will call or email participants with more details about enrollment and the class location.
