Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Training Classes

This is a past event.

The Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) Program is a woman's self-defense and awareness training program developed by Larry Nadeau and his staff in Virginia. It is an internationally recognized, proactive, physical defensive tactics-training program provided to females around the nation. After much research and extended efforts, the UAB  Police & Public Safety Department adopted and is now routinely providing this program as a service to the female population  of the UAB community.

The R.A.D. System’s instructional objective is to develop and enhance the options of self-defense, so they become viable considerations to the woman who might be attacked. R.A.D. is a twelve-hour course, which is broken up into three, four-hour sessions offered during the evenings specified.
