R.A.D.: Free Self-Defense Training for Women. The University of Washington Police Department (UWPD) will be offering free self-defense training Fall Quarter. Check back here over the summer for dates and times. The program trains women in Rape Aggression Defense (RAD), simple yet effective self-defense designed for women on university and college campuses. The program teaches realistic measures to take that do not require special skills, years of practice, or any particular level of fitness.
The UWPD offers RAD for free to community members, including faculty, students, and staff as well as our neighbors in the University District. Class participants praise the class for “inspiring” them and helping make them feel “much more confident” and “empowered.” Students have told us they are proud that they completed the simulation training.
