Learn About UNH’s Women’s Self Defense Class

 Have you ever felt unsafe or intimidated walking home alone at night? Especially when there doesn’t seem to be many people around besides you. This can be a common situation on a college campus, and it can make people feel uneasy. Now you can learn how to defend yourself in the hopes to feel safe on campus, and wherever you go.

UNH Campus Recreation is offering a self defense class for women, that follows The Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) System. This program is taught by the UNH police department officers, and gives hands on and realistic self defense techniques. This can help women be more aware of their surroundings, and know how to avoid and prevent unwanted situations. The best part about these classes is that they are free to UNH students and faculty as well as any Hamel Recreation Center studio staff. Classes will be held on March 25th, March 26th, and April 2nd, and each class is from 12 – 4pm.

Statistics show that 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted at some point in their lives, and 1 in 4 women in college will be sexually assaulted. You can be proactive and help prevent this from happening on the UNH Campus!

Sign up online today for a class, or visit campus recreation for more information!
