The Marietta Police Department will have the 12-hour Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) class on four consecutive Mondays in July.

R.A.D. is a simple yet effective self-defense course for women only. The techniques are designed to be quick and effective in delivering pain to vulnerable locations on the attacker’s body. The course is designed so that women of all fitness levels and ages will successfully learn options to escape attacks. R.A.D. is a 12-hour course, delivered over four-three hour classes.

Participation in all four classes is necessary to complete the course. The charge for this course is $10. Space is limited.

The classes will be July 22, 24, 29 and 31 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the police department, 240 Lemon Street in Marietta.
