Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.)

The R.A.D. program helps provide women with self defense education and training. The goal is to eliminate the general myths that women may have regarding rape and sexual assault and teach women how to avoid creating opportunities for an attacker. Women also learn basic principles of self-defense through actual live simulations.
