Rape Aggression Defense System

The Rape Aggression Defense System, known as R.A.D., is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women, children and seniors. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands on self defense training.

R.A.D. was founded in 1989 by former campus police officer, Lawrence Nadeau. The program has become the country’s largest and fastest growing self defense program for women, with 11,000 certified instructors and 900,000 trained women. Currently, R.A.D. is taught at more than 400 colleges/universities and law enforcement agencies, as well as other community organizations internationally.

R.A.D. is the only self defense program ever to be endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), National Academy of Defense Education and the National Self Defense Institute (NSDI).

The objective of the R.A.D. program’s is to develop and enhance the options of self defense so they may become viable considerations to the woman, children and seniors who are attacked.
Each student will receive a workbook/reference manual which outlines the entire physical defense program for reference and personal growth. Upon completion of the program, your signed manual becomes a “ticket” for the Free Lifetime Return and Practice Policy with any R.A.D. instructor, honored worldwide.

The course teaches easy, effective and proven self defense tactics and techniques to protect against various types of assault. The course consists of a classroom learning component, which covers topics relating to women, victimization and risk reduction, as well as a practical learning component.

This course is designed for the average individual. No previous experience or background in self defense is required. The focus of R.A.D. is to empower through self defense through the core concepts of education, dependency on self, decision making responsibility and self realization of physical power. These goals are best achieved through a learning environment where students can feel safe, supported and with minimal exposure to vulnerabilities. It is vital that participants be comfortable in their practice.
