Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.)
Rape Aggression Defense System (RAD)
Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) is fundamental, hands-on training that teaches women on how to defend themselves in the event of an attack.  It combines classroom instruction on awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance with basic hands-on defense tactics.  Certified deputy RAD instructors teach the course.
What would you do if you found yourself faced with a violent or other dangerous situation? Would you run? Would you comply with your attacker's demands? Would you defend yourself? No two situations are the same, but you CAN develop a plan to help you survive an attack. After all, YOU are the one who is ultimately responsible for your personal safety.
