Self Defense course where a student practicies with a UPD instructor (2)

Kickin' With Confidence

Kickin’ with Confidence is a 2 hour program shows participants realistic self-defense tactics and techniques. The course begins with awareness, prevention, and risk avoidance. Kickin’ with Confidence is not a martial arts program, but is a program taught by certified instructors from the University Police Department and other campus offices.

The program is sponsored by SAFER (Students Active For Ending Rape), the It's On Us Action Team,  the Office of Student Affairs, a Wal-Mart Community Grant and the University Police Department.

We offer this program in conjunction with other sexual assault awareness strategies. We recognize that sexual assault is a complex problem, and there are many different initiatives that can work in concert to address the issue.
