Rape Aggression Defense
R.A.D. is a self-defense course, specifically designed for women, sponsored by the Department of Campus Safety and the College of Kinesiology at the University of Saskatchewan. This 12-hour course involves an in-depth discussion on risk reduction strategies, as well as ways to increase awareness and how to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
This discussion is followed by over 6 hours of basic self-defense training specifically designed to harness the innate abilities that every woman possesses. The techniques are simple to learn and extremely effective. This self-defense training is followed by an optional simulation exercise that involves the instructor suiting up in a padded “Aggressor Suit” and simulating an attack. At no point is the student ever struck or physically attacked, but the students, many for the first time in their lives, are given the opportunity to fight full force and actually feel the power that they possess.
The R.A.D. program is designed for women of all ages and of all levels of physical fitness. Our instructors are nationally certified and are men and women of law enforcement who believe in the safety and empowerment of our students, faculty, and staff. Registration for R.A.D. classes is open to all women (members of the public included).
