Redbird AWARE is a 2-hour self-defense introduction course for all genders. It includes prevention techniques and introductory self-defense options that may reduce the risk of exposure to violence. As an introduction to the physical aspects of self-defense, this program has a dual purpose:
“Self-defense is not just a set of techniques, it's a state of mind that begins with the belief that you are worth defending.” -Rorion Gracie
The basis of the Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) system is realistic self defense for Women (not a martial arts program). It provides women and young girls with an environment to nurture and develop positive skills, attitudes, belief in self and physical fitness. It is structured as a WOMEN ONLY course and taught by certified R.A.D. instructors. The three focuses are: Risk Reduction, Physical Defense and Dynamic Simulation. Students must attend all 12 hours of the program, but no other costs or equipment are required. Only your dedication is required to succeed.
Why women only?
Redbird AWARE and RAD can be requested through our Community Engagement Unit. Additional personal safety discussions centered around specific topics of concern to your group may be availble. Please contact our Community Engagement Unit and start a conversation about how we can address your questions and educational needs.
Multiple courses are scheduled for fall 2022! Registration is open now on Redbird Life.
Redbird AWARE courses are available upon request for individual groups who can commit a full 2 hours to the program. Please contact us at email@example.com to discuss scheduling. RAD cannot be requested individually as it takes more than one session to complete. We do encourage your group to participate in the scheduled sessions.
