Rape Defense Class Scheduled

by Andrea Minihan

The Holliston Police Department is presenting a Rape Aggressive Defense Class funded by the MetroWest Women's Alliance.

The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a Martial Arts program. Courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth.

DATES:  August 21, 22 & 23rd

TIME:  5 -9 p.m.

PLACE: Flagg Building, 100 Linden Street, Holliston

Class is open for female residents 16 and older and at all fitness levels.  You must attend all three classes.
