The Coral Springs Police Department is offering a self-defense program for women over the age of 13. RAD classes are free and are offered at the Northwest Regional Library. Upcoming classes will be held for four consecutive Tuesdays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. starting September 15.
RAD, Rape Aggression Defense, is a nationally recognized program designed to teach realistic self-defense techniques to women. The classes build educational and physical skills, which can be used in the practice of self-defense, through emphasis on simple strikes, kicks, blocks, and defensive posture.
The instructional objective of RAD is to develop and enhance the options of self-defense, so they may become viable considerations of the woman who is attacked. This 12-hour comprehensive program seeks to empower women to be able to reduce their likelihood of becoming a victim, while teaching them the skills to survive should they be caught in such a situation.
Space is limited to 20 participants per course. To register, please call 954-346-1227 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The Northwest Regional Library is located at 3151 N. University Drive.
