R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense System) 


The National Standard in Self Defense Education

The Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.)System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. R.A.D. 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. Our 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.

This 12 hour program is usually offered on campus from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

If interested please contact the TAMIU police department at 326- 2100 or e-mail: for a current schedule. We can always add courses at a time, date, and place that better fits your schedule whether it is on weekends or weekdays, morning or evening.  I f you have already taken a R.A.D. course and would like to take a one day - 3 hour refresher R.A.D. course, contact us. (Soon to be Offering a R.A.D. Advanced Course).
