Rape Aggression Defense System and




The Rape Aggression Defense System is a 9-12 hours program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth, and is the key to our free lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates.
Ages 12 up

R.A.D. Objective

"To develop and enhance the options of self-defense, so they may become viable considerations to the woman who is attached."


Most women fear for their safety at some point every day of their lives. This is an astounding revelation to men, who rarely fear for their safety at all.
One study shows over 14 years, there were over 2.3 million women who reported sexual assaults in the US.  71 % of these women avoided being raped by self-protective measures.( US Department of Justice. Bureau of Justice Statistics).

R.A.D. is the largest network of its kind with over 7000 Instructors receiving training in our systems to date. These Instructors teach at various colleges, universities, and municipal law enforcement agencies as well as various other community organizations internationally. R.A.D. has trained more than 300,000 women since the program began in 1989.
R.A.D. is the only existing program with a free lifetime return and practice policy, honored throughout both the US and Canada.
R.A.D. has developed specialized simulation techniques and equipment for use by certified R.A.D. instructors.
R.A.D. is the only self-defense program ever endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA).

 radKIDS® is Teaching Kids the Skills

They Need to Protect Themselves

Through radKIDS training, children become empowered and learn to replace the fear, confusion, and panic of dangerous situations with confidence, personal safety skills, and self-esteem.

Today’s news stories are frightening to parents who may be confused about keeping their children safe. How do you teach your children of the dangers without scaring them? The truth is that most kids already know the dangers 
and are already concerned. The most important thing a parent can do is teach their children to think and be prepared. Because when you’re prepared you’re not scared!

radKIDS strengthens family, encourages physical fitness, and teaches core life skills to all children 5-12 years old (grades K-6). Fun, activity-based programs include lecture, safety drills, muscle memory exercises and dynamic simulation providing a
multi-sensory rich learning environment.
radKIDS is brought to you by training concerned adults from your own community. By empowering your community with nationally certified local instructors, the radKIDS program can continue to provide essential education to children for generations. radKIDS community based programs have been offered in schools, local
recreation programs, day camps, scouting and religious youth groups. 
125,000 children have been trained in the rad-KIDS Personal Empowerment   
safety Education™ program.

39 children threatened with abduction used their radKIDS skills and returned safely to their families.

Thousands of children have spoken up and gotten the help they needed to stop the abuse.
