What is the RAD System?

The Rape Aggression Defense System (RAD) is a program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques. This comprehensive course for women begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. RAD is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses are taught by certified RAD instructors and provide you with a workbook/reference manual that outlines the entire physical defense program for reference and continuous personal growth.

The RAD system of physical defense is currently being taught at many universities and colleges. The wide spread acceptance of this system is primarily due to the ease, simplicity, and effectiveness of our tactics, solid research, legal defensibility and unique teaching methodology.

The RAD system is dedicated to teaching women defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assault by utilizing easy, effective and proven self-defense/martial arts tactics. Our system of realistic defense will provide a woman with the knowledge to make an educated decision about resistance. We provide effective options by teaching women to take an active role in their own self-defense and psychological well being.
