May 2019 – 2-Day Basic Physical Defense Class
May 25 @ 9:00 am - May 26 @ 4:30 pm$41.5
Morning of Day 1:
Utilizing the R.A.D. student manual, students will be involved in discussions on topics which include risk reduction strategies, date rape, continuum of survival, defensive strategies and the basic principles of defense.
We also discuss the pros and cons of defensive weaponry, how to develop a defensive mindset, understanding offensive and defensive postures, recognizing vulnerable locations and utilizing personal weapons.
Afternoon of Day 1/Morning of Day 2:
Participating students will begin the process of hands on training. The techniques utilized by R.A.D. Systems are based on simple gross motor skills and are developed to the point they become instinctual through repetition. Students will have the opportunity to use these techniques in dynamic impact training by striking padded equipment held by the instructors. All techniques target a single attacker. Participating students will continue to refine the skills previously learned with “practice, practice and practice.”
Afternoon of Day 2:
Students will then participate in “simulated assault” scenarios with R.A.D. instructors, who along with participants, wear state-of-the-art protective gear specifically designed for this training. Women have the opportunity to utilize their skills in a safe training environment.
Cost: $40.00 per person (+ PayPal fee of $1.50) = $41.50 CAD
Course Location: We are currently teaching the course in the North East area of Edmonton. Due to our non-profit status (ie. we have no money, lol), our training location changes from time to time. Once you are registered, you will receive the most up-to-date location information.
