Rape Aggression Defense Classes (R.A.D.)

Women defending themselves: RAD

Palomar College Police Department offers a nationally recognized self-defense program: the Rape Aggression Defense System (RAD). RAD is a 12-hour training course designed to maximize the physical defensive abilities of women. Unlike other self-defense programs, RAD teaches basic, practical techniques that require no special fitness level or equipment. The goal of the program is to enhance the options for self-defense, so these options become viable for a woman who is attacked. Participants have the opportunity to test their newly learned defensive strategies during simulated attack scenarios. Those who complete the course are entitled to attend the class repeatedly anywhere in the United States. Included in the RAD classes are a component of Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness.
