Women Residents Trained in Self-Defense


Rockford Sexual Assault Counseling, Inc., periodically provides free “RAD” training – Rape Aggression Defense – for the Mission’s Women’s Life Recovery residents. On Friday, Aug. 9, at the Mission, instructor Jimmie Getter and Winnebago County Sheriff's Deputy Jason Frizzel demonstrated defensive strategies: starting with the voice, then a defensive stance and finally, if the attacker makes contact, physical moves to defend oneself. Rockford Sexual Assault Counseling, Inc., is located at 4990 E. State St.

Here's a Photo Gallery from the training session.
