Located at 15200 Annapolis Road (Adjacent to Bowie Center for the Performing Arts,) the Market is held every Sunday from 8am to Noon.

Learn Self Defense

The Bowie Police are offering self defense classes.

 The classes use the R.A.D system.  The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The system is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D is not a martial Arts program.

The courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. The manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth, and is the key to our free lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates.

There are two upcoming series of classes: Saturday mornings (beginning 8/28) and Tuesday evenings (beginning 9/7) Classes are held once a week for 5 weeks.
