The Rape Aggression Defense System or R.A.D. was designed to develop and enhance the options of self-defense, so they become viable considerations to a person who is attacked.
R.A.D. is a female only program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques. The system is a comprehensive course for women that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on self-defense training. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program.

Courses are taught by certified R.A.D. instructors and consist of 12 hours of hands-on training. This is a no-nonsense, practical self-defense program that offers advanced self-defense courses that build upon the Basic Physical Defense System. The R.A.D. System is the only program that offers a free LIFETIME return and practice policy anywhere in the United States or Canada.
