R.A.D. Women Basic Physical Defense Course

R.A.D. is a contemporary basic self-defense course for WOMEN ONLY.  Rape Aggression Defense Systems, Inc. and East Providence police officers trained in this program to provide attendees with information, tactics and considerations, which we believe may be useful to various types of abductive encounters perpetrated against women. Even though your husbands, domestic and intimate partners want to protect you from harm and keep you safe, they are not able to be there every hour of every day. The fact is, there is one person who will definitely be there in your time of need and that is you. You are your only best defense. 

The R.A.D. Women Basic Physical Defense Course is a series of six, three-hour classes, given twice a week for three weeks. Any questions, please contact one of our R.A.D. Instructors:

  • Lt. Maari Stainer 401-435-7600 EXT. 20181
  • School Resource Officer Tammy David 401-433-6230
  • Detective Matthew McNulty 401-435-7600 EXT. 20031

Pre-registration is required. A one-time fee ($20) is due on the first day of classes. Space is limited! Grab a family member or a friend and attend.
