Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Classes

TCCPD R.A.D.

Rape Agression Defense class logoThe course is taught by nationally-certified R.A.D. instructors, and provides each student with a workbook and manual. The manual outlines the entire physical defense program which facilities women students' personal growth, and further serves as an information source after completion of the course. The R.A.D. System's instructional objective is to develop and enhance the options of self-defense, so such options become viable considerations to the woman who might be attacked. R.A.D. is a twelve-hour course, which is broken up into four, three-hour sessions offered during the evenings. R.A.D. is offered all over the United States and Canada. Once graduating from R.A.D., students can return and practice their self-defense skills at any location where R.A.D. is offered. Therefore, the women participants acquire self-defense skills in a relatively short period of time and are offered the opportunity to relearn, master, and practice these skills throughout their lives.
