Rape Aggression Defense System logo

The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of self-defense tactics and techniques. The R.A.D. 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.

This program is open to students, faculty, staff, and community members. Stop by Public Safety headquarters or email RAD@cofc.edu to sign up.

R.A.D. is not a martial arts program. Our courses are taught by certified R.A.D. instructors.

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.
