The Coral Springs Police Department offers free advanced self defense classes for women ages 13 and older. The Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) System is a national program that teaches women empowering skills to avoid becoming a target and to fend off an attacker.Through repetition and practice, this course promotes muscle memory, and helps women to train in a realistic environment so they learn to survive a struggle.
The RAD System is taught in four classes, which is held over the course of one month on either a weeknight or a Saturday. Each class is three hours, and the final class includes a physically active, hands-on scenario and graduation ceremony. While the course will be physically involved, no prior self defense training is necessary.
These advanced RAD classes begin regularly and each course is limited to 20 participants. Classes are held at the Coral Springs Police Department, located at 2801 Coral Springs Drive, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Women must register in advance, and be able to attend each of the four sessions. Call 954-346-1227 for more information on the RAD program or to sign up for the next available course.
A release form must also be filled out and submitted prior to taking the first class.
