R.A.D. Self-Defense Program

What would you do if you found yourself faced with a violent or other dangerous situation? Would you run? Would you comply with your attacker's demands? Would you defend yourself? No two situations are the same, but you CAN develop a plan to help you survive an attack. After all, YOU are the one who is ultimately responsible for your personal safety.

The R.A.D. Systems is a series of empowering programs that offers a holistic and non-threatening approach to learning self-defense. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program, but rather a mixture of risk awareness education and physical defense tools that are found to be most effective in a physical encounter.
