RAD Systems - Rape Aggression Defense
Campus Security Home Page
The Rape Aggression Defense System provides women basic information on personal safety, awareness, risk reduction and avoidance. RAD teaches practical defensive techniques that require no special skills.  This is employed as women learn to be more aware of their surroundings. RAD also offers the opportunity to test these learned skills on a real person during an optional simulated attack session.

The Company Profile for R.A.D. Systems:Queen's Security RAD Class Pictures

"The national standard in self defense Instructor Certification, the Rape Aggression Defense Systems are internationally recognized for programming quality and organizational  commitment to excellence. R.A.D. Systems balances the needs of women to acquire self defense education in a relatively short period of time, with the life long commitment required for physical skill mastery. How? By providing short term training opportunities in a progressive building block format, and combining each with R.A.D.'s trademark Lifetime Return and Practice Policy! Only a unified, extensive network can provide this service honored nationwide and throughout Canada. While other programs and/or instructors struggle to keep pace, R.A.D. Instructors share life saving information with confidence, knowing that their lessons will be continuously reinforced for a lifetime!"

Queen's Campus Security and Emergency Services certified a number of Rape Aggression Defense System instructors during the Summer of 1999 and have added instructors, maintained training, and updated the program regularly since that time.
