R.A.D. is not a martial arts program. Our courses are taught by certified R.A.D. instructors and provide you with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire physical defense program for reference and continuous personal growth.

The R.A.D. System of Physical Defense is currently being taught at many venues.
The growing, widespread acceptance of this system is primarily due to the ease, simplicity and effectiveness of our tactics, solid research, 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/marital arts tactics. Our system of realistic defense will provide a woman with the knowledge to make an educated decision about resistance.

The R.A.D. Course
The R.A.D. course is taught by College of Charleston Public Safety Officers who have attended training and are certified by R.A.D. Systems as instructors.
