The Rape Aggression Defense System for Women is a program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques. The Department recognizes that for some people, personal empowerment and self-advocacy involves learning any number of personal protection strategies. There’s no experience needed to take a R.A.D. class, because the progressive building block format gives everyone the opportunity to learn the skills they want to learn — from how to be aware of your surroundings and who’s around you, to what to do if they’re attacked from behind to using proper form. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program.
FACT: Sexual assault is never the victim’s fault. Sexual assault is a violent attack on an individual, not a spontaneous crime of sexual passion.
R.A.D. is another tool for your personal safety toolbox.
