Rape Aggression Defense Basic
Personal Defense System is a national
program of realistic self-defense
tactics and techniques taught for women
only. All courses are taught by
nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors.
The goal of R.A.D. is to provide
realistic self-defense options to women,
regardless of their level of physical
conditioning. Students at all levels of
ability, age, experience, and strength
will be provided with techniques and
information that can be effectively used
from the first day of class. R.A.D. is
not a martial arts program, nor does it
require students to be athletes in
training to succeed.
The R.A.D. system will provide students
with the knowledge to make an educated
decision about personal defense. We
provide information on physical and
non-physical options, as well as insight
into the attacker mindset.
Every student receives a manual for
reference and practice. Once a student
has completed a R.A.D. program, their
signed manual becomes a ticket for free
lifetime return and practice with any
R.A.D. instructor in the US and Canada.
The widespread acceptance of the R.A.D.
system is due to the ease, simplicity,
and effectiveness of our tactics, solid
research, legal defensibility, and
unique teaching methodology. R.A.D. is
the only self-defense program endorsed
International Association of Campus Law
Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA).
