The R.A.D. Systems of Self-Defense are the official self-defense training programs of the National Academy of Defense Education. The (RAD) 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 risk awareness, risk reduction, risk recognition, and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training.
R.A.D. is not a Martial Arts program.
The Boston Police Area E-13 Community Service Office offers a RAD course using certified instructors. The course is free of charge. If you are interested in taking the course, please contact Elisa Reid, or P.O. Antonette Ramsay at 617-343-5624. The next course is expected to start during the last week of October at the Faulkner Hospital, 1153 Centre St, Jamaica Plain. Contact our office for more details.
