About this course:

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, woman-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.

What you need to know:

  • Course is 3 days, and you must attend all classes.
  • Each class runs from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm (Weds - Fri).
  • You will need to bring photo ID or UCSF ID to the class.
  • Student manuals will be provided and are yours to keep.
  • Please wear comfortable gym attire and athletic shoes.


Mission Center Building (MCB) Room #126 is located on the first floor main lobby - across from Carmelina's Cafe. Parking is available for personal vehicles at the MCB surface parking lot located at 15th Street and Folsom Street.
