Nicholls Rape Aggression Defense

Nicholls State University Student Services offers Rape Aggression Defense classes for the campus community each semester. Nicholls has two certified R.A.D. instructors who coordinate classes throughout the year.

R.A.D. is a sexual assault awareness, prevention and defense course designed for women only. The classes are free to the women of the campus community. The program is a 12-hour course that is broken into three sessions of four hours each. The class is taught by certified R.A.D. instructors and offers plenty one-on-one attention with participants. Those completing the class receive a detailed workbook/reference manual and a lifetime return and practice policy to attend R.A.D. classes anywhere for free.

The R.A.D. System is a program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques. It is a comprehensive course for women that begin with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program. The R.A.D. courses are taught by certified instructors and provide students with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire physical defense growth. The R.A.D. System of Physical Defense is currently being taught at many colleges and universities. The growing, widespread acceptance of this system is primarily due to the ease, simplicity and effectiveness of the tactics, solid research and unique teaching methodology.

The R.A.D. Systems is dedicated to teaching women defense concepts and techniques against various types of assault, by utilizing easy, effective and proven self-defense tactics. The system provides women with the knowledge to make educated decisions about resistance.
