Police to offer combination college survival/rape aggression defense (RAD) class
The College Survival/Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D) class, offered by the City of Friendswood, is currently open for enrollment.
College survival skills and the R.A.D. system are combined into a four-day program for the new college-bound female student. Each day, local area experts will introduce a new college survival skill to the student.
On day one, Chef Ann will teach participants how to spice up college meals. On day two, Edwina Alexis, a registered interior designer, will show everyone some space-saving and decorating ideas for the dorm. On day three, Michael White, with AMOCO Financial Services, will teach about living life on a college budget. And on day four, Friendswood Auto will teach some basic vehicle maintenance skills.
R.A.D. will follow each day's mini-college survival class. R.A.D. is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, 15-hour women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program.
Classes will be held on Thursday, July 7, from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday, July 8, from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Saturday, July 9, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, July 10, from noon to 6 p.m.
The class is open to all women entering college and space is limited. The cost is $35, which is a nonrefundable commitment fee required for registration.
To register, contact the Friendswood Police Department Records Division at 281-996-3300.
