Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) System

What is the RAD system?

The Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques. The RAD System is a comprehensive course for women that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. RAD is not a martial arts program. The courses are taught by certified RAD Instructors and provide you with a workbook/reference manual.

This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth. The RAD System of Physical Defense is currently being taught by RAD Certified Barry University Staff Members. The growing, wide-spread acceptance of this system is primarily due to the ease and effectiveness of our tactics, solid research, legal defensibility, and unique teaching methodology. The RAD System is dedicated to teaching effective and proven self-defense/martial arts tactics. Our system of realistic defense will provide a woman with the knowledge to make an educated decision about resistance.

We operate on the premise that a spontaneous violent attack will stimulate a natural desire to resist on the part of the victim (supported by research). We educate women about "The Flight or Fight Syndrome," while showing them that enhancing their option of physical defense is not only prudent, but a necessity if natural resistance is to be effective.

Safety and survival in today's world requires a definite course of action. We provide effective options by teaching women to take an active role in their own self-defense and psychological well being.
