In an effort to educate female students in the area of self-defense, the DeSales University Police Department provides women with the opportunity to attend the Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) program.
The R.A.D. program is a comprehensive course designed solely for women that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance while progressing onto the basics of hands-on defensive training. Classes are designed for all women, regardless of their physical fitness ability.
The Rape Aggression Defense Systems is dedicated to teaching women defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assault by utilizing easy, effective and proven self-defense tactics. It is not a martial arts program. Women who take the course will receive instruction which covers basic safety and self-defense skills and explores a defensive mindset. This system of realistic defense provides women with the knowledge to make educated decisions about resistance. R.A.D. courses are currently being taught by certified instructors at over 400 colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada.
