S.A.F.E. is an unparalleled 2-hour educational awareness, crime-victim prevention program – encompassing Strategies, Techniques, Options, and Prevention – that provides women with information that may reduce their risk of exposure to violence and introduces them to the physical aspects of self-defense. The program has a dual purpose:
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 are provided with a course booklet for practice and reference. The booklet outlines the entire course and remains with the student upon course completion for growth and development. Each student, upon successful completion of the R.A.D. course, is a lifetime member and may return FREE to courses offered around the country (with their student manual signed by the R.A.D. instructor). Students must attend all 12 hours of the program, but no other costs or equipment are required. Only your dedication is required to succeed.
If you do not identify as a woman but are interested in a personal safety discussion, one can be requested through our Community Engagement Unit.
As classes are scheduled they will be listed for registration on Redbird Life.
SAFE courses are available upon request for individual groups who can commit a full 2 hours to the program. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
