(Oxnard, CA) – The Oxnard Police Department in cooperation with Oxnard Recreation & Community Services, the Oxnard Boys & Girls Club, and the Oxnard Police Foundation is pleased to announce a
six-week series of Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) classes beginning Thursday, January 26. Classes are held at the Wilson Center, 350 North C St., Oxnard (northeast corner of Palm/C St.) 
RAD is a 12-hour program of realistic, defensive tactics and techniques for women and girls ageS 12 and older. The RAD System is a comprehensive, female-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. RAD is not a martial arts program. Courses are taught by nationally-certified RAD instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth, and is the key to RAD’s free lifetime return and practice policy for RAD graduates.
Classes are held on six consecutive Thursdays from 6:30-8:30 p.m. except for the introduction class on January 26 which runs one extra hour until 9:30 p.m.

January 26, 6:30-9:30 pm
February 2, 6:30-8:30 pm
February 9, 6:30-8:30 pm
February 16, 6:30-8:30 pm
February 23, 6:30-8:30 pm
March 1, 6:30-8:30 pm

Class size is limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis. A $20 donation is recommended.  Students should dress comfortably for physical activity (e.g. warm-up suit and tennis shoes). To RSVP please email kenklopman@oxnardpd.orgor call (805) 982-7020 and leave a message.
