The Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) program is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques. It is a comprehensive course for women only (ages 13 and up) that starts with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance and then progresses to the basics of hands-on defense training. RAD is a 9-12 hour course that is usually taught in three 4-hour sessions.
The first block is a classroom discussion about risk reduction strategies, date rape mentality, continuum of survival, defensive strategies and the basic principals of defense. Other topics include developing a defensive mindset, understanding offensive and defensive postures, the benefits of yelling versus screaming, recognizing vulnerable locations and utilizing personal weapons.
The second block introduces students to the hands on defense training. The techniques are based on simple gross motor skills and are developed to the point that they become instinctual through repetition. Practice, practice and practice!
In the third block students will participate in “simulated assault” scenarios at full contact with RAD instructors who wear state of the art protective gear specifically designed for this training. Women will be able to utilize their skills in a safe training environment monitored by instructors. By taking training to this level, students can see how they will react in an actual scenario by getting their heart rate and adrenaline pumping.
R.A.D. Systems is the world’s largest and fastest growing self-defense program for women and children. The curriculum is taught at over 40,000 colleges and universities, police departments, sheriffs’ offices, local transit companies, military bases, women's centers, rape crisis centers, and independent locations across the United States and worldwide. The course meets or exceeds all guidelines for choosing a self defense program, developed by the National Coalition against Sexual Assault (NCASA) and is the only self defense program ever to be endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA). Because this is an international alliance, any R.A.D. graduate from any class in the world can attend another instructor’s class for practice, free of charge, for the rest of her life!
