Every day in the USA, of today, girls, young women, young mothers (including those great with child, and those with babies and toddlers in tow, ), and women are targeted and attacked by vicious, predatory, armed criminals. Monsters commit kidnap/rape/murder attacks with shocking frequency in these corrupted, perverted United States of America, in addition to kidnap/rape/sex enslavement & kidnap/rape/prostituting-trafficking!
The younger, the more petite, more feminine, prettier, kinder, sweeter, friendlier, and more trusting the girl or woman is, the more likely she is to be targeted, and the less likely she is to recognize danger before she is attacked, nor to be able to react instantly and resist effectively if attacked.
It is vitally important that every girl, young woman, and woman receive self-defense training to enable them to recognize danger before it strikes, and if attacked to react instantly, violently, and more effectively than they otherwise could.
One course that is offered nationwide in the US and in locations across Canada, which is free or low cost depending on who is providing it, and which can equip those who take it to better defend themselves if attacked is called RAD (an acronym for Rape Aggression Defense). The RAD women’s courses are available to girls, young women, and women 18 years of age and older; they also offer a children’s course.
While this course is by no means a panacea or “silver bullet,” it is vitally important training to have, even if one is one of the fortunate few who are able to obtain a conceal carry permit, something that is next to impossible to obtain in many major metropolitan areas (including the largest metros) and so-called “progressive” states.
