A free course designed to give women the basic tools of self-defense and the confidence to use them begins in March at Northeast State.
Women can learn the art of self-defense and survival through the Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D) course. The course has three sessions meeting March 11, 18, and 25, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The course is being taught at the College’s main campus, 2425 Highway 75, in the Courtyard of the Student Activities Building.
Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) is a nine (9) hour program conducted over three sessions. Participation is open to female Northeast State students, staff, and faculty as well as female members of the community 18 years of age and older. If you feel you may not be able to attend all three sessions on the dates above, please do not sign up.
The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, women-only course that teaches awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. The course includes lecture, discussion and self-defense techniques, suitable for women of all ages and abilities.
The course is free. Registration is required. To register or learn more, contact 423.323.0255 or jnoffield@NortheastState.edu.
