The Rape Aggression Defense System (RAD) is a 12-hour, four-class, female-only self defense course with a focus on awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance. The RAD program enables women to obtain self defense education in a relatively short amount of time. Put on by staff from the Franklin County Sheriff’s office, all instructors are nationally certified. The RAD system is the only self-defense program endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators.

This session of classes will be held March 9, 10, 16 and 17 from 6-9 p.m. at Mount Carmel Grove City. At least 20 people are needed to register for this class to take place. To register, please contact Nicole Kidwell in Mount Carmel Safety & Security.
