R.A.D. Systems for Women
(Rape Aggression Defense)
The 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 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. Our courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth, and is the key to our free lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates.
The Office of Campus Security will host at least one R.A.D. program per semester. Classes will be open to anyone interested, with priority given to Belmont students, faculty, and staff. Class size is limited to approximately 10 students. A minimal fee is required for the purchase of manuals and other materials.
Although R.A.D. for women is the only course offered at Belmont at this time, classes for men are offered at Vanderbilt University. Go to http://www.vanderbilt.edu/VUPD/radclass.htm for details.
No classes are scheduled this summer because of instructor inavailability. If you are interested in attending a class this summer, please send an email to email@example.com and you will be directed to other programs in town or go to http://rad-systems.com/program_tn.html to locate programs in Tennessee.
