Resisting Aggression Defensively, known as R.A.D. for MEN, is a self-defense program designed specifically for men. The R.A.D. approach to personal safety begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, and progresses to hands-on physical defense techniques.

Participants will have the opportunity to: raise their awareness of aggressive behavior, recognize how aggressive behavior impacts their lives, learn steps to avoid aggressive behavior, consider how they can be part of reducing aggression and violence, and practice hands-on self-defense skills to resist and escape aggressive behavior directed toward them. This program is designed to empower participants to make safer choices when confronted with aggressive behavior.

The R.A.D. for MEN program is taught by nationally certified instructors who are dedicated to the growth and well-being of our campus community. The course is suitable for men of all ages and abilities.
