The RAD system of personal safety education involves a practical blend of threat avoidance strategies and real-world assault resistance tactics for women. The focus of instruction is on the development of easily mastered personal safety skills which are practiced within a comfortable learning environment, and the coupling of those physical skills with a threat assessment process which will increase personal safety awareness. The simulation training process involves an instructor outfitted in a protective suit, and involves simulation of a real attack.
