Dalton Police offers free women’s self-defense course

DALTON, Ga. (WDEF) – The Dalton Police Department will host another free session of the popular RAD Systems Women’s Self-Defense Class later this month.

Organizers say previous sessions of the class have been well-received by women who have participated.

The program is based on the R.A.D. Systems (Rape Aggression Defense) self defense course.

It is a three-class course and will take place August 23rd, 25th, and 30th.

It happens from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. but the location has not yet been announced.

The class is limited to 10 women ages 13 and up. However, girls younger than 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver to enroll.

All women who successfully complete the course receive a lifetime return policy allowing them to participate in any R.A.D Systems program to refresh their skills at any time.

The 12-hour course educates women on safety strategies to minimize their chances of becoming a victim, and physical tactics aimed at disabling an attacker long enough to escape.

You can apply to participate in the class online.

The RAD Self-Defense Course website lists its mission statement:

The mission of the R.A.D. Systems is to establish an accessible, constantly improving and internationally respected alliance of dedicated Instructors. These Instructors in turn, will provide educational opportunities for women, children, men and seniors to create a safer future for themselves. In doing this, we challenge society to evolve into an existence where violence is not an acceptable part of daily life.
