Comprehensive Women-Only Self-Defense Techniques

Suffolk’s Rape Aggression Defense program provides realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. 

Suffolk's RAD course, taught once a semester by two nationally-certified instructors, it is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, progressing on to the basics of hands-on self-defense training (it is not a martial arts program).

The course is a total of 12 hours of training, and each student is provided with a workbook/reference manual. Suffolk is proud to offer the RAD program free of charge to all members of our community. For further information, contact University Police at 617-573-8333.
