RAD is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses
are nine to twelve hours long and 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 at the State University College at Oneonta. The
growing, wide spread acceptance of this system is primarily due to the
ease, simplicity and effectiveness of our tactics, solid reach, legal
defensibility and unique teaching methodology.
The Rape Aggression Defense System is dedicated to teaching women
defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assault, by
utilizing easy, effective and proven self-defense/martial arts tactics.
Our system is 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. The R.A.D. System is an effective option teaching women to take
an active role in their own self-defense and psychological well being.
