The Sevierville Police Department has scheduled a nine-hour Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) class for women on July 16, 23 and 30, 2009, from 6:00PM – 9:00PM each night, at the Sevierville Civic Center in the City of Sevierville Municipal Complex. The class is free of charge and is open to all interested women. The purpose of the class is to develop and enhance self-defense options, so they may become viable considerations to a woman if she is attacked.
The R.A.D. class is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. system is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program.
The class will be taught by SPD Sgt. Rebecca Cowan and Officer David Finchum, both nationally certified R.A.D. instructors. Each participant will receive a workbook/reference manual, which outlines the entire program for future reference and continuous personal growth.
To register for the class or get additional information, please call 865-453-7310. extension 3013 or 3001.... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
