Rape Aggression Defense system training offered

Local certified R.A.D. instructors are collaborating with Kishwaukee College Continuing Education to present a 12-hour curriculum-based self-defense course for women in four scheduled three-hour sessions: From 6 to 9 p.m. Mondays – today, Nov. 11 and 18, and an optional simulation session from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 23.

R.A.D. means Rape Aggression Defense and its objective is to develop and enhance the options of self-defense, so they can become more viable considerations to the woman who is attacked.

This 12-hour course, supplemented by a R.A.D. student manual, involves discussion of risk reduction strategies, date rape, continuum of survival, defensive strategies and basic principles of defense. Students will use these learned skills and techniques in dynamic impact training against padded targets held by instructors. Students will have the opportunity to participate in “simulated assault” scenarios with R.A.D. instructors in a safe training environment. This program provides every student a lifetime return and practice policy with other certified R.A.D. programs across the country.

The program will meet in room B2301 at Kishwaukee College in Malta. Registration costs $12. To register, call Denise Fry at Kishwaukee College, 815-825-2086, ext. 2040, between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
