Self-Defense Awareness & Familiarization Exchange (S.A.F.E) Training
S.A.F.E. is a 2-hour educational awareness and crime-victim prevention program that provides teenage and adult women with information that may reduce their risk of exposure to violence and introduces them to physical self-defense. Teaching that “90 percent of self-defense is awareness, risk reduction and avoiding confrontation, and only 10 percent is physical,” the program focuses on both mental and physical preparedness. S.A.F.E. provides women with public safety-awareness information to incorporate into their everyday lives as well as realistic options for avoiding, escaping and surviving assaults if they do occur.
Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) Systems Training
R.A.D. Systems training teaches physical self-defense techniques suitable for women of all ages and abilities. Classes range from nine to 12 hours, typically spread over several sessions. No previous experience or background in self-defense is required to attend.
