The Rape Aggression Defense Basic Personal Defense System is a
national program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques taught
for women only. All courses are taught by nationally certified
The goal of R.A.D. is to provide realistic self-defense options to women,
regardless of their level of physical conditioning. Students at all levels of
ability, age, experience, and strength will be provided with techniques
and information that can be effectively used from the first day of class. R.A.D.
is not a martial arts program, nor does it require students to be athletes
in training to succeed.
The R.A.D. system will provide students with the knowledge to make
an educated decision about personal defense. We provide information on
physical and non-physical options, as well as insight into the attacker mindset.
Every student receives a manual for reference and practice. Once a student
has completed a R.A.D. program, their signed manual becomes a ticket for
free lifetime return and practice with any R.A.D. instructor in the US and Canada.
The widespread acceptance of the R.A.D. system is due to the ease, simplicity,
and effectiveness of our tactics, solid research, legal defensibility, and unique
teaching methodology. R.A.D. is the only self-defense program endorsed by the
International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA).
R.A.D. is the largest network of its kind
with over 7000 Instructors having received
training in our systems to date. These
Instructors teach at various colleges,
universities, and municipal law enforce-
ment agencies as well as various other
community organizations internationally.
R.A.D. has trained more than 300,000
women throughout the U.S. and Canada
since the program began in 1989.
R.A.D. is the only existing program with a
free lifetime return and practice policy,
honored throughout both the US and
R.A.D. has developed specialized simu-
lation techniques and equipment for use by
certified R.A.D. instructors.
R.A.D. is the only self defense program
ever endorsed by the International Association
of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators
