Rape Aggression Defense

Cedar Crest College Campus Police believe that our faculty, staff, and students should have the ability to defend and protect themselves from an assault should they choose to do so. For this reason, Campus Police provides the R.A.D. Program for Women as a part of our ongoing commitment to the safety, service, and education of our campus community. Males interested in self-defense can be re eared to a R.A.D. for Men Class.

RAD was developed in 1989 and has trained more than 900,000 women in self-defense.


“The opportunity to secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.”

RAD Systems
The National Standard in Self Defense Education(tm)

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. Our courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth, and is the key to our free lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates.

Our Instructional Objective:

"To develop and enhance the options of self defense, so they may become viable considerations to the woman who is attacked."
