The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Police Department (UTCPD) is offering R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense) training this October at the Challenger Center Building Room #148 (755 Mocs Alumni Drive), across from the UTC Police Department. The dates for the classes are October 19-21 from 6-9 p.m. R.A.D. is an internationally recognized alliance of self-defense educators dedicated to enhancing self-defense options for women while developing their individually unique abilities to manage aggressive and violent behavior.
UTCPD’s R.A.D. class is scheduled in blocks, and you must attend all block dates to receive certification for the course in order to attend the advanced class. This class does not require any special training or special fitness level. Students at all levels of ability, experience and strength will be provided with information and techniques that can be effectively used from the first day of class. This basic self-defense program is for all women identified and women ages 12 and up.
R.A.D. is the largest organization or program ever endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA). R.A.D.’s self-defense philosophies have been taught at over 3,500 colleges, universities, city, county and state police departments nationwide.
Corporal Rebecca Tolbert (R.A.D. instructor) will be the primary instructor for the course.
