Self Defense

Self Defense 

The program is taught by members of our department who are certified R.A.D. instructors. The program is a basic physical defense course for women and the objective is "to develop and enhance options of self-defense so they may become viable considerations for the woman who is attacked." This program teaches women to depend on themselves to be responsible in decision making and gives them a realization of physical power. It not only empowers women but changes their lives. If you would like more information on this program please contact Sergeant Karen Nicholas at 508-626-4911 or via e-mail at
