Rape Aggression Defense

radclassBall State offers free classes in the Rape Aggression Defense System (R.A.D.), a comprehensive program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques for women.

R.A.D. is not a martial arts program. Rather than simply focusing on physical defense, the R.A.D. course begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and avoidance, before progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training.

R.A.D. courses are taught by Ball State police officers who are nationally certified R.A.D. instructors. Participants receive a workbook and reference manual.

The R.A.D. system is taught at many universities and colleges around the country. The widespread acceptance of this system is primarily due to the ease, simplicity, and effectiveness of the tactics, solid research, legal defensibility, and unique teaching methodology. R.A.D. teaches women defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assault by using easy, effective, and proven self-defense/martial arts tactics.
