ANGOLA - The Steuben County Sheriff’s Office and the Angola City Police Department are offering realistic, physical, self-defense training for females 12 and older.

R.A.D. Systems stands for Rape Aggression Defense.

R.A.D. was established in 1989, and is an International network of certified Instructors. The instructors believe self-defense should be easy to learn, easy to retain, and relatively easy to use if physically confronted.

R.A.D. course includes one night of lecture, two nights of practicing techniques, and as part of the last night there is simulation.

R.A.D. Systems is the country’s largest and fastest growing self-defense program for women, children, and seniors.

R.A.D. Systems offers no nonsense, practical techniques of defense.

R.A.D. is NOT a martial arts program. 90% of self-defense is awareness and this program will teach risk awareness, prevention, reduction, and avoidance, while progressing to the basics of hands-on defense training.

The program will be held February 13, 14, and 15 from 5:30 until 9:15 p.m. at Pleasant Lake Elementary School located at 1205 W Main St., Pleasant Lake.

The program is free of charge. A twenty-dollar deposit will be collected at the time of registration, and returned to all participants that complete all 3 nights of the program.

This program will be a basic program.

As a refresher, students who have already completed the three-night course are encouraged to attend the second and third nights of the program.

Steuben County RAD would like to thank all of the community’s foundations, and corporate sponsors that have supported the RAD program for women.

To register contact First Sgt. Brad Kline at Steuben County Sheriff’s Office at 260-668-1000 ext. 5260 or Assistant Chief Darrin Taylor at Angola Police Department at 260-665-2121
