MURFREESBORO — A five-week spring series of RAD, or Rape Aggression Defense, classes planned to begin Thursday, April 2, for all female members of the MTSU community has been cancelled, MTSU Police have announced.
However, a summer series is scheduled to begin in June.
The MTSU Police Department will offer a free five-week series of Rape Aggression Defense, classes beginning Wednesday, June 10, for MTSU students, faculty and staff, along with the general public.
The Rape Aggression Defense Class is a program of realistic defense tactics and techniques. The comprehensive course for women emphasizes awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance and progresses to the basics of hands-on defense training.
Certified RAD instructors teach the free course.
The summer classes will be held each Wednesday from June 10 to July 8 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Attendance at all five sessions is mandatory for participants to ensure they receive all necessary information and training.
Class size is limited for this summer RAD course, so the MTSU Police Department is encouraging interested parties to enroll soon.
Participants should email their names and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Instructors will notify participants about their enrollment and the class location via email or phone.
