MAULDIN, SC (WSPA) – This weekend, the Mauldin Police Department hosted a two-day Rape Aggressive Defense, or RAD, training class.
The class focuses on teaching women basic self-defense skills they can use if they are ever attacked.
In addition to the physical defense techniques, the women also have a “class” part, where they learn statistics about rape, and some of the qualities of an attacker.
The ultimate goal of the class is making sure women walk out of the session with a sense of confidence, and the feeling that they can handle whatever life throws at them.
The next RAD class will be in August or September, and is completely free at the Mauldin Police Department.
