Free Men’s Self Defense Class 3/21

The UConn Police Department in partnership with the University of Connecticut are working together to reaffirm the goal of providing the highest level of safety and well-being to the UConn community by offering a men’s self-defense class free-of-charge. The class is offered to students and staff within the University Community.

The goal of this men’s self-defense class is to provide realistic self-defense options to men regardless of their physical conditioning through the “R.A.D for Men” systems of self-defense. Students and staff at all levels of ability, age, experience, and strength will be provided with techniques and information that can be effectively used from the first day of class in everyday situations. R.A.D. for men stands for Resisting Aggression with Defense and is designed to empower men to resist/escape aggression while learning to defend themselves when confronted with aggressive behavior.

This 12 hour course (4 classes) will be held on Tuesday nights starting March 21st through April 11th 2017, each class starts at 5:30 pm and ends by 8:30pm. Class will be held at UConn’s Shippee Hall lower level Pequot Room. Participants must attend all 4 classes in order to complete the course, which will include risk awareness, prevention, and by stander information as well as the physical hands on self-defense skills.

Class size is limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Online enrollment for this class begins March 1st, 2017. To register for this class visit our website at
