Event Description

The R.A.D. Systems of Self-Defense are the official self-defense training programs of the National Academy of Defense Education. The (RAD) 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 risk awareness, risk reduction, risk recognition, and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training.  R.A.D. is not a Martial Arts program.


The Boston Police Area E-13 Community Service Office offers a RAD course using certified RAD instructors. It is free of charge.  Please contact Elisa Reid at 617-343-5624 to sign up for the course.

I took one of these courses a couple of years ago with an instructor in Boston and it changed the way I looked at myself - it really can be life altering. I encourage anyone who is even thinking about doing it to give it a try or to call for information. I truly appreciated the experience of learning the power that I had to take of myself.
