Coral Gables Campus: Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) courses offered


Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.):
Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) is a 12-hour, in-depth, internationally recognized program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The comprehensive course begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and risk avoidance before progressing into detailed hands-on defense training, which includes a final simulation exercise. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program but rather a physical defense program designed specifically for women to utilize in the most common types of physical-attack situations.

Note that participants must be at least 16 years of age to attend alone. Interested women younger than 16 should visit the FAQ Page for program age policies. The program cost is $35 for students, faculty, and staff, and $45 for non-UM-affiliated individuals (public). Credit card payment is due at time of online registration. Please review the Self-Defense Program Payment Policies prior to registering and paying.
