Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) Basic Physical Defense is the cornerstone of the R.A.D. systems. R.A.D is not just about self-defense against rape, R.A.D. is a program filled with realistic self-defense tactics and techniques. The course begins by teaching women awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, then progress to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is NOT a martial arts program. Certified instructors will identify personal weapons women can use to defend themselves and identify vulnerable locations on the person who is attacking them. Instructors will introduce different striking techniques and students will be able to practice one on one with the instructor. Instructors are the only individuals allowed to take “strikes”. Each session is designed to add another technique/option of self-defense without overwhelming the participant.
This R.A.D. course for women focuses on 4 risk factors of self-defense:
- Risk awareness
- Risk reduction
- Risk recognition
- Risk avoidance
This 12-hour course is spread over two weeks with either a total of four 3-hour classes, or three 4-hour classes.
