The Duvall Police Department is now offering the nationally recognized women’s self defense course, R.A.D. or Rape Aggression Defense.
The next class is set for September. The instructor, Shelley Rowe, has been involved in this program since 2008, after getting nationally certified by R.A.D. Systems, through a course taught at the University of Iowa. She has taught over 150 students thus far and the number is continuing to grow.
The R.A.D. System is a detailed and comprehensive course for women that begins with crime prevention, risk reduction and avoidance while progressing on to the basics of self defense. This program is dedicated to teaching defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assault, but utilizing easy, effective and proven self defense tactics.
