Why We Like R.A.D

  • R.A.D. Systems has at its foundation education and awareness.

  • The course includes lecture, discussion, and self defense techniques, suitable for women of all ages and abilities. Classes range from nine to twelve hours in length.

  • R.A.D. Systems balance the needs of women to acquire self defense education in a relatively short period of time, with the life long commitment required for physical skill mastery. How? By providing short term training opportunities in a progressive building block format, and combining each with R.A.D.'s trademark Lifetime Return and Practice Policy.

  • R.A.D. is the only self defense program ever endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA).
