The Arlington Police Department offers a free Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) class for female residents over the age of 18. The R.A.D. system develops and enhances the options of self-defense through lecture, discussion, and hands-on self-defense techniques. The R.A.D. system is a comprehensive, women only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk-reduction, and risk-avoidance, while progressing to the basics of hands on defensive training.
Pre-registration and classes start annually in May. In order to participate in the class, you must be able to attend all four class dates. Classes are held on Thursdays from 6-9pm for four consecutive weeks, beginning at the end of May, and running through mid-June.
