Rape Aggression Defense Classes

Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) is a national program designed to provide women with the concepts and methods needed for self-defense. The program enables women to take a more active role in protecting themselves and their psychological well-being.

Classes are taught by certified R.A.D. instructors over three evenings and cost $10. All women in the UC San Diego community – students, staff, faculty and affiliates – who are at least 16 years old are eligible to attend.
