Rape Aggression Defense Systems (R.A.D.)

The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. This comprehensive, women-only course begins with awareness, prevention, and risk reduction/risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. RAD is not a Martial Arts program. The courses are taught by nationally certified RAD Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual.

Officer Adam Lichinsky is a certified instructor for the Hudson Police Department. Officer Lichinsky and his team are dedicated to teaching women defense concepts and techniques against various types of assault by utilizing easy, effective and proven self-defense tactics. Our system of realistic defense will provide a woman with the knowledge to make an educated decision about resistance and/or other viable options.

RAD operates on the premise that a spontaneous violent attack will stimulate a natural desire to resist, on the part of the victim (supported by research). We educate women about "The Fight or Flight Syndrome" while showing them that enhancing their option of physical defense is not only prudent, but also a necessity if natural resistance is to be effective.

Safety and survival in today's world requires a definite course of action. RAD provides effective options by teaching women to take an active role in their own self-defense and psychological well being.
