SAFE:Self-defense Awareness & Familiarization – Exchange (SAFE) is a two hour program offered for female students, faculty and staff at M.B.U. The program is based upon the following ideas: violent crimes are crimes of opportunity, and when you remove the element of opportunity, you reduce the risk of attack. 90% of self-defense is mental preparedness; the other 10% is physical. S.A.F.E. provides participants with great crime prevention information and resources as well as a pre-basic familiarization with physical defense training methods

RAD: RAD classes including Basic RAD and Advanced RAD – Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) is a comprehensive course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. Certified RAD instructors teach all RAD classes.
