Basic Self Defense-Great Falls (Grades 6-12)

Learn how to 'fight like a girl' and protect yourself in a situation that threatens your well being. This girls-only session will include lessons on risk reduction and physical defense, as well as a component that allows you to practice your new skills in simulated situations with a trained and certified instructor.

The basis of the Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) system is realistic self defense for girls and women (not a martial arts program). It provides girls with an environment to nurture and develop positive skills, attitudes, belief in self, and physical fitness. It is structured as a GIRLS ONLY course and taught by a certified R.A.D. instructor. Girls are provided with a course booklet for practice and reference. The booklet outlines the entire course and remains with the student upon course completion for growth and development. Each girl, upon successful completion of the R.A.D. course, is a lifetime member and may return FREE to courses offered around the country (with their student manual signed by the R.A.D. instructor).  For more information, please visit the RAD website at

This is a 7-hour course, with lunch included. Female family members and troop leaders are welcome to stay and watch, but no males are allowed.

Due to the nature of the topics discussed in this course, parents of girls participating in this course are required to sign a Girl Scout 'Sensitive Issues' Permission form and several R.A.D. forms, which will be sent home with the confirmation letter after registration closes. If you have any questions about the content or your child's participation in this program, please contact Jessica Cumber at or 1-800-736-5243 extension 2108.

Program registration deadlines are extremely important for our council.

Knowing the number of girls attending our programs in advance helps us:
  • Determine the number of adults to meet the girl/adult ratio.
  • Allow time to order materials and badges needed.
  • Decide if registration numbers meet the minimum required to hold the program.
  • Have time to mail confirmation letters or cancellation letters.
