A course designed for women of any fitness level teaches techniques from risk reduction to self-defense in real-life scenarios. Using the nationally-recognized Rape Aggression Defense System (R.A.D.) program, course instruction teaches strategies against various types of assault using proven self-defense tactics, including hands-on methods, crime prevention, risk reduction, and avoidance.
Certified instructors Corporal Nigel Draveling and retired Officer Dave Bond will teach the course. Future course offerings include advanced self-defense and aerosol self-defense.
Participants must attend all four classes for a total of twelve hours. Classes will be held at Cascade Covenant Church, 13225 436th Ave. SE in North Bend. Cost of the course is $30, payable by cash or check the first day of class.
