What is a RAD Course?

The Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Course is a four day program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The RAD Course 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. RAD is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses are taught by certified RAD instructors.


The RAD Course of physical defense is currently being taught at many Colleges and Universities throughout the country. The growing, widespread acceptance of this system is primarily due to the ease, simplicity and effectiveness of our tactics, solid research, legal defense and unique teaching methodology. The Rape Aggression Defense Course is dedicated to teaching women defensive concepts and techniques against various type of assault, by utilizing easy, effective and proven self-defense/martial arts tactics. Our system of realistic defense will provide a woman with the knowledge to make an educated decision about resistance.
