The Douglas County Sheriff's Office has adopted the Rape
Aggression Defense (RAD) Systems Basic Women's Self Defense Program
as part of its community outreach and crime prevention education
Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Systems is an international
organization of certified instructors who work to combat the issues
of violence against women. This class is 12 hours long. The class
is designed for women age 14 and older, of any physical ability. In
this class, women begin by learning simple risk awareness and
avoidance strategies. They then learn proper blocking, striking and
kicking techniques. The class continues with women learning
techniques for escaping wrist grabs, bear hugs, choke holds and
being pinned on the ground or against a wall. The class concludes
with a simulation exercise where participants are given an
opportunity to use the techniques learned in a safe training
