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.
Since it’s inception in 1998, radKIDS has been committed to providing education that enhances the ability of children and parents to utilize knowledge, skills and power to protect themselves from violence and harm. The 4-week course is taught by nationally certified R.A.D. instructors from the Urbandale Police Department and the surrounding area. Participants are provided with a workbook/reference manual that outlines the entire Physical Defense Program. The manual is also the key to a lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates.
For more information on the R.A.D. or radKids programs contact Sgt Gary Lang at (515) 331-6895 or email.
