Two individuals practicing defensive techniquesR.A.D. is a safety program hosted by the Cerritos College Police Department which empowers women by teaching realistic self-defense techniques and tactics through a comprehensive 12-hour hands-on course.

The class begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and avoidance education, progresses to the basics of hands-on self-defense training, and culminates in a full defense simulation. A high level of fitness is not a requirement to participate, but dynamic physical simulations will take place on a voluntary basis.


R.A.D. is open to ALL women on campus who are current Cerritos College student, staff, or faculty.

(*Priority registration will go to Students)
