The Coral Springs Police Department offers free advanced self-defense classes for women ages 13 and older. The Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) System is a national program that teaches women empowering skills to avoid becoming a target and to fend off an attacker. Through repetition and practice, this course promotes muscle memory, and helps women to train in a realistic environment so they learn to survive a struggle.

The RAD System is taught in four classes, which is held over the course of one month on Tuesday evenings. Each class is three hours, and the final class includes a physically active, hands-on scenario and graduation ceremony. While the course will be physically involved, no prior self-defense training is necessary.

RAD is taught in four-week sessions from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Public Safety Building. Click below on the “flyer” for up-coming course dates and for further information.

A release form must also be filled out and submitted prior to taking the first class.
