The Niles City Police Department and Michigan State Police are jointly offering a Basic Physical Self-Defense class for women. The R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense) System of Self Defense is dedicated to teaching young ladies and women defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assault by utilizing easy, effective and proven self-defense/martial arts tactics.

This system of realistic defense will provide women and young ladies with the knowledge to make an educated decision about resistance. We operate on the premise that a spontaneous violent attack will stimulate a natural desire to resist on the part of the victim.  This premise is supported by research.

We educate young ladies and women about "The Fight or Flight Syndrome" while showing them that enhancing their option of physical defense is not only prudent, but a necessity if natural resistance is to be effective.

Safety and survival in today's world requires a definite course of action and escape. We provide effective options by teaching women to take an active role in their own self-defense and psychological well-being.
