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

Typical Questions asked about the R.A.D. Class
Q: How long is the R.A.D. class?
A: The typical R.A.D. class is 12 hours long. This is broken up into four three -hour segments. OR six two-hour segments.
many people are in each class?
A: While there is no set amount of students for each class, we do limit class size to ensure that each participant feels comfortable and is able to receive proper instruction.
time is the class?
A: Class times will be varied due to demand and actual participation. An example of the offered class times might be 5 to 9:30 p.m. We will make every effort to meet the needs of your group.
Q: Do I have to go
to all classes?
A: Participation in all class segments is necessary to “graduate” from the class and receive your pass to any future R.A.D. classes held throughout the United States, free of charge. Each class builds from the previous class with regard to defensive techniques.
Q: Do I really
get to hit someone in a suit?
A: Yes. You will get the chance to practice what is taught to you in previous classes, on one of the instructors who will be dressed up in a well padded protective suit. This is called simulation training and is a valuable part of the class as it gives the student a chance to see how their newly learned skills work in real life situations. This part of the class is optional, but is encouraged.
Do I need to be an athlete to participate?
A: Not at all. The class is designed so that the average person can take it. We instruct people to go at their own pace and we never ask you to do something you can't do or do not want to do.
When can I sign up for this class?
A: Watch for information about class offerings posted on bulletin boards located throughout the campus and on the Campus Police website. Complete a registration/interest form online and get your name on the list. Classes fill up quickly!
