Learn Safety and Self-defense Skills after-school at V-O

Calling all Winchester 4th and 5th graders!

Sign up for this Winchester Police Department-led course on how to
“Resist Aggression Defensively (rad)”
Taught by Winchester Police Department Officer Dan Arria, this course emphasizes essential
decision-making skills as well as physical resistance options. The family-centered radKIDS®
program encourages physical fitness and teaches realistic physical skills and core safety
values to live by. The fun, activity-based program includes lectures, safety drills, and physical
skills to resist or stop violence or harm, and dynamic simulation. Through radKIDS® training,
children become empowered and learn to replace the fear, confusion, and panic of dangerous
situations with confidence, personal safety skills, and self-esteem. The curriculum and
activities also emphasize character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness.
Parents are invited to attend the last class and see their children demonstrate how much they
have learned.
