Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) Classes

R.A.D. is a nationally-known self defense program. The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for individuals who want to learn such techniques. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, and progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training.

Courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors. R.A.D.’s program objective is to develop and enhance the options of self defense so they may become viable considerations to an individual who is attacked.
