R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense ) for women



Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) Systems 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 our law enforcement officers, whom are certified as R.A.D. instructors. The course is comprised of lecture, discussion, and self-defense techniques. In addition, each student is provided with a manual which outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference.

This course is approximately 12 hours long and is offered on campus.
