R.A.D. Program
RAD classThe Rape Aggression Defense System is a 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.

The course includes lecture, discussion and self-defense techniques suitable for women between the ages 14 and 59. Classes range from a minimum of nine to twelve hours plus in length, depending on the Instructor.

R.A.D. classes are offered free to the public. For more information, contact  Sgt. Derrick Gemos at dgemos@townofgroton.org
