Personal Safety

The UC Davis Police Department offers a 4-hour introductory course and two-day (24-hour) intensive self-defense course based on the Model Mugging format. This training is hands-on, full contact (on the instructor) and geared specifically towards all aspects of self-defense against domestic and sexual assault by both known and unknown assailants.

UC Davis Campus Recreations and Unions also offers quarterly self-defense classes at the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC). Self defense is a complex skill with many aspects. In a practical defense situation, situational awareness and conflict resolution will almost always take precedence over physical conflict. This course, however, isn't about resolving conflict. It's about self-defense, for more information and for registration see the Campus Recreation and Unions website.
