The Wayne State University Police Department is again offering a new Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Self Defense class for Women -

The R.A.D. Key Chain Defense Options course is one of the only realistic and court-defensible impact weapons programs available for the general public. Combining proven R.A.D. Physical Defense strategies with revolutionary impact weapons defense techniques makes this program a worthy addition to the four R.A.D. System Women's Self Defense courses currently offered by the Wayne State University Police Department.

Realistic employment, combat effectiveness, "light impact", fluid transitions and even simulation training exercises are all part of this program. This program revolves around use of the Kubaton in conjunction with weapon-enhanced physical skills.

You will receive the Kubaton you train with at the completion of the class.

The RAD Key Chain Defense Options class will be held at the Wayne State University Police Department on Saturday, March 4, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The WSUPD is located at 6050 Cass Avenue at Burroughs, two blocks north of the I-94/Ford freeway.

WSU students, staff and faculty members may also attend with, or enroll, one non-WSU woman as their guest. This would include non-WSU spouses, partners, girlfriends and female siblings. Daughters and siblings 12 to 16 years of age may attend the RAD Key Chain Defense Options training program once a parent signs a Parental Consent Form. We highly recommend that the minor female attends the RAD course with a female parent or older female sibling.

The RAD Key Chain Defense course only costs $20.00 per participant for the one 4 hour session class. You will receive your own student manual and the Kubaton you train with. Payment is required at time of registration. We can accept cash or personal checks (payable to 'Wayne State University Police').

You must register in advance to ensure your enrollment.

How to register for RAD Key Chain Defense for women:

In order to maintain a high student to instructor ratio, class size is limited to the first 20 registered participants. To register for this class, please bring your $20 registration fee and your WSU OneCard ID, to the Records Section of Wayne State Police Department located at 6050 Cass Avenue at Burroughs, two blocks north of the Ford freeway. (Feel free to park in the 'Police Only Zone' in front of the building as the course registration will only take a couple of minutes).

WSUPD Records Section Office Hours are Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.

RAD Key Chain Defense Options class registrations will be accepted until 4:30 pm on Wednesday, March 1, 2017, unless the class fills to capacity before that time.

NOTE: All RAD Key Chain Defense class participants must have already completed the Basic Rape Aggression Defense class to attend RAD Key Chain Defense Options as you will use and build upon the skills previously learned in the RAD Basic Self Defense Class you attended.
