Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) Class
R.A.D. is a women-only self-defense class offered throughout the United States and Canada, primarily on college campuses. The program is designed to develop and enhance self-defense options so they become viable for women being attacked. Please see the video about the R.A.D. class at DU.
R.A.D. classes are held in the Evans building, 2130 S. High St., west of the Driscoll Center South building. The class fee is $25. Class size is limited.
There are no R.A.D. classes scheduled during the summer months. Please re-visit our website in September 2013 for an updated listing of available classes.
