Overview on Safety
The goal of the BUPD RAD program is to provide an easily accessible program of education and awareness for the women of Boston University on both the Medical and Charles River campuses. The program trains women in basic self-defense and offers them viable options when confronted with various threats of violence.
The RAD system is not a martial arts class; the RAD system educates women about defensive strategies using simple and effective tactics and a unique teaching methodology. The RAD system—a realistic self-defense program of defensive tactics, techniques, and education—is a comprehensive course for women that progresses from awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and avoidance to basic self-defense participation. The course includes an illustrated and easily read student manual that outlines the entire physical self-defense program and can be referred to for continued personal growth.
RAD classes are available on the Medical Campus. Registration is required. Cost is $10 for all four classes. Classes will be held Oct. 30, Nov. 6, Nov. 13, Nov. 20, in the Instructional Building in Hiebert Lounge, 5:30–8:30 p.m. Participants must attend all four classes to receive a certificate of completion.
