RESISTING AGGRESSON WITH DEFENSE FOR MEN
R.A.D. for Men
Resisting Aggression with Defense was developed by R.A.D. systems in 2001. This program is designed to empower participants to make safer choices when they encounter varies confrontational situations. The course consists of two components:
• An educational component focusing on risk-awareness
• Risk-reduction education and a physical/tactical component focusing on basic resistance techniques.
In a small number of incidents, physical confrontations cannot be avoided. The course works to challenge societal expectations of men in order to make their environment safer.
The R.A.D. program is not a martial arts program, nor does it require students to be athletes in training to succeed. At the end of the course, students will have the opportunity to participate in a simulated training experience which will give them an opportunity to practice techniques in a controlled learning environment.
Registration is done on a first come first serve basis and is required prior to class. Enrollment is limited. The class involves multiple sessions which include lecture, discussion and self-defense techniques. Every student receives a manual for reference and practice upon completion of the R.A.D. program, their signed manual becomes a ticket for free lifetime return and practice with any R.A.D. instructor in the US and Canada. All courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. instructors
