Comprehensive Women-Only Self-Defense Techniques

Suffolk’s Rape Aggression Defense program provides realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. It 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 self-defense training. It is not a martial arts program.

Suffolk’s RAD courses are taught by nationally certified instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. We have two certified members on campus who teach RAD once a semester. Together, they team up to instruct a 12-hour training session. Suffolk is proud to offer the RAD program free of charge to all members of our community. We strongly recommend this course.
