RAD teaches realistic self-defense tactics and techniques to give women options in the event of an attack.
The self-defense class focuses on risk awareness, reduction, recognition and avoidance, while also providing physical techniques designed to empower women to escape abduction or sexual assault attempts.
The classes will be held on four consecutive Thursday nights beginning Feb. 2. The classes are held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Middle Tennessee Association of Realtor’s building, located at 311 Butler Drive.
Participants must have a parental consent form completed if younger than 18 years old.
Class size is limited.
