The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. System is a 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. The course is taught by certified R.A.D. Instructor Det.Christie Gover.

Each student receives a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous growth, and is the key to the free lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates.

Class Curriculum
The class is taught in four evening classes of three hours each. The first class is an overview and discussion on risk reduction and prevention. The next two classes consist of learning and practicing physical defense moves. The final class is a simulation of an attack. Simulation is strictly voluntary and the students can still complete the class if they choose not to volunteer; but they must be present. Students must attend all four classes to complete the course.

Participation Requirements
There are discussions regarding risk assessment and risk awareness. For obvious reasons, the class is never taught to males. Mothers and daughters 12 years old and up are encouraged attend. In addition to developing and enhancing their options of self-defense, it is a great bonding experience.

Registration and Cost
Registration dates, class dates and locations are also posted on the City of Madison's Event Calender. Each participate must pre-register before attending a free class.
