Could you effectively defend yourself if attacked? The George Mason Police Department is offering Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Systems training at no cost to university-affiliated women Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. in the Aquatic and Fitness Center.

The course is taught by George Mason police officers who have completed a 30-hour instructor course and maintain close contact with other area instructors. The 12-hour training program was designed for the average woman and includes discussion on victim awareness and risk reduction. In addition, it provides realistic and dynamic hands-on training using practical techniques of self-defense. The training allows women to think about and practice self-defense options in a safe atmosphere. RAD program completion includes a lifetime membership policy allowing free refresher training throughout the United States and Canada, wherever the course is offered.

To sign up for the class, call (703) 993-2810. For more information, visit the Police Department’s web site or call the RAD information line at (703) 993-2118 and select options 7 and 5.
