R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense) System isa national program that teaches women realistic self-defense tactics and techniques. The R.A.D. program begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defensive training. This is not a martial arts program. Nationally-certified instructors provide students with information on physical and non-physical defense options, as well as insight into the mind-set of an attacker. Women are taught to take an active role in their own self-defense and psychological well-being. R.A.D. is dedicated to teaching women defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assaults by utilizing easy, effective and proven self-defense tactics.
The R.A.D. ClassThe R.A.D.class consists of 9-hours of training that is usually taught over a period of three evening classes. The students must attend all classes to complete the course. 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 U.S.
Participation does not require athletic ability. Women of all levels of ability, age, experience, and strength will be provided with techniques and information that can be affectively used from the first day of class.
The simulation component of the class is strictly voluntary and the students can still complete the class if they choose not to volunteer; but they must be present. The vast majority of women who perform the simulation leave with a feeling of empowerment.
