  • RAD offers practical self-defense To potential rape victims, Claremore Police Officer Robin Blair offers this advice: Don’t get mad, get RAD.

    RAD, or the Rape Aggression Defense system is a program of realistic, self-defense techniques taught to women in a classroom setting by certified instructors from the community.

    “We’ve been doing RAD programs through the police department for years now, usually a few courses a year, sometimes more, depending on demand,” said Blair, certified RAD instructor. “Our last program was in April and response to it was overwhelmingly positive, so we’re scheduling our next (RAD) program for later this month.”

    During the program, Blair, again with officers Danny Dobbins and Michael Shaver, teaches women no-nonsense means of protecting themselves against an attacker.
