instruction through the Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Program. The RAD
course - which is open to all female students, staff and faculty - is
offered free of charge. The basic physical defense class is 12 hours,
divided up into four days, three hours each day.

awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing to
the basics of hands-on defense training.
