The La Porte Police Department would like to announce to area residents, beginning January 28th, 2019, the agency will offer another Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) training courses at its facility, located at 3001 North 23rd.

For those unfamiliar with the RAD System, it is, in essence, a program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques. RAD is a comprehensive course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and avoidance while progressing toward the basics of actual hands-on defense training. It is important, however, that participants understand that RAD is not a martial arts program. The class, taught by LPPD’s certified RAD Instructors, begins with a classroom-based orientation where workbooks and reference manuals lay the course foundation. During this initial phase, the entire physical defense program is outlined for both personal reference and continuous individual growth. Later, the physical techniques are discussed, and eventually encompass a series of comprehensive hands-on exercises.


Four, 3-hour, days of RAD coursework are scheduled for two weeks in a row, on January 28th, 30th, & February 4th and 6th. All classes run from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., with each daily class building on the former. The course days are intentionally spread out, as the program is both physically and mentally intensive. Nevertheless, LPPD’s RAD instructors are committed to making the course dates fun and enjoyable, as well as genuinely educational.

The RAD training is open solely to women ages 13 and up; younger ladies under the age of 18 must attend class with their mother or female legal guardian. A growing and wide-spread
