HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana University Police Department will offer a Rape Aggression
Defense (RAD) self-defense class for women in the community July 26-28. The class
is open to female Southeastern students, employees, and their guests 12 years of age
"The RAD System of Physical Defense is currently being taught at many colleges and universities and in communities throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom," said Southeastern Police Officer Scott Huff. "The growing, widespread acceptance of this system is primarily due to the ease, simplicity and effectiveness of our tactics, solid research, and unique teaching methodology."
The class will be held at a confidential location on or near Southeastern's main campus in Hammond. The three four-hour sessions (total of 12 hours) for the class will include Friday evening, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday afternoon. Attendance at all three sessions is necessary to complete the course.
While enrolled Southeastern students are admitted free, there is a $25 charge for current Southeastern faculty and staff, which must be paid in advance to obtain a space on the class roster, Huff said. Students or employees may bring non-student guests at an additional charge of $25 per guest. Since space is limited, and early registration is recommended.
For more information or to register for the class, e-mail Huff at RAD@southeastern.edu with the name and telephone number of the participant(s).
