R.A.D. Rape Aggression Defense
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. We 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.
Please take the time to talk to our R.A.D. Instructors. Fill out a card of interest in person or print one online so that we can let you know when we will be conducting the next class. Please contact us with any questions you may have concerning R.A.D. at (217) 581-3213.
