RAD for Women

Provide yourself with options.


This 12-hour women only course gives viable options of self-defense, so that women can avoid and/or escape predatory crime. Ages 11+ with parental permission.


A continuation of the basic program, this 25-hour long course expands immensely on the concepts and techniques learned from the original class.


R.A.D. for Women is held on a “as-requested” basis. Please inquire using the form if you would like a R.A.D. for Women class for your group or family! We require at least five participants, and no more than ten at a time.

The class is $50 per student. You can save $5 by pre-registering online. After completing the course, you can go to any location in or out of the United States that offers R.A.D. for Women, and the course will be free for the rest of your life.
