Rape Aggression Defense Systems (RAD) is the largest self-defense network in the country. The RAD system teaches awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and basic physical defense techniques. The course culminates in a "realistic simulation" which gives the students the opportunity to test their abilities on a real person during a simulated attack. RAD is taught by certified instructors from the Ankeny Police Department. There is a $35 fee for the course that includes a training manual and a lifetime return practice policy. This is the perfect course for any woman who is interested in learning how to protect herself. Mothers and daughters are encouraged to attend together. Minimum age to participate is 14 years old. Written permission from a parent or guardian to participate is required for anyone under the age of 18 years old.

If you have any questions regarding the course, please contact lead instructor Officer Tony Higgins at thiggins@ankenyiowa.gov. or call and leave message at 515-289-5240.

Space is limited, register now to ensure your spot.

"To develop and enhance the options of self defense, so they may become viable consideration to the woman who is attacked."
