S.A.F.E. Training

S.A.F.E. classes are a combination of academic and physical self-defense familiarization. This two hour class will introduce the student to a few physical moves as well as give tips for keeping themselves safe. This class should be taken only if a Women’s RAD class has not been already completed. The moves and lessons are taken from the RAD Women’s program and available to those who might not have the time for the 15 hour Rad Women’s class or for those who might want to “test drive” the RAD Women’s class.
