The Auburn Police Department will be offering a self-defense course for women next month. The four-session, which begins August 9, teaches the RAD (Rape Aggression Defense) System of awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance. Registration is required.
R.A.D. is dedicated to teaching women defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assault by utilizing easy, effective and proven self-defense/martial arts tactics. R.A.D. is not a martial arts class. Certified RAD instructors will teach the course.
Dates: August 9, 16, 23 and 30
Time: 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Location: Auburn Police Department (210 S Cedar Street) - Meet in the front lobby

Students will discuss the following:
Participants will begin hands-on, direct impact training, striking padded equipment held by the instructors. All techniques target a single attacker.
Participants will refine the skills and continue to practice techniques.
Students will participate in “simulated assault” scenarios with R.A.D. instructors, who along with participants, wear state-of-the-art protective gear specifically designed for this training.
