R.A.D./Self Defense

DSC_3960
Overview
The Brookline Police Department offers a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense) System is a comprehensive, women-only 3 day course that is designed to educate women in basic Risk Awareness, Risk Reduction, Risk Recognition, and Risk Avoidance techniques. R.A.D. is dedicated to teaching women defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assaults by utilizing easy, effective, and proven self-defense/martial arts tactics. 

An important note of self-defense is that the more prepared you are, the less likely you are to need it. When you can recognize and respond effectively to potentially dangerous situations, you are less likely to be victimized.  With knowledge and practice we become more confident in our everyday activities. 
Our courses are taught by Brookline Police officers who have been nationally certified and trained to instruct the R.A.D. program. This is a free, hand’s on, and exciting course. No prior skills required.
