What is a R.A.D. Class?
The Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) System is a program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques. It is a comprehensive course for a woman that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing on the basics of hands-on defense training.

R.A.D. is not a martial arts program. Our courses are taught by certified R.A.D. instructors and provide you with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire physical defense program for reference and continuous personal growth. The R.A.D.
