The R.A.D. Systems Program

The R.A.D. Systems of Self Defense offers programs for women, children, men and seniors. These offerings provide a truly holistic approach to self defense education, supporting the necessity of continuous learning in order to provide realistic options for each population as they go through life. Each of these programs includes educational components comprised of lecture, discussion, physical resistive strategies. All of which are facilitated by certified R.A.D. Instructors supported by a network of dedicated professionals who honor one another’s student through our unique Lifetime Return and Practice Policy.

R.A.D. Systems Mission Statement

The mission of the R.A.D. Systems is to establish an accessible, constantly improving and internationally respected alliance of dedicated Instructors. These Instructors in turn, will provide educational opportunities for women, children, men and seniors to create a safer future for themselves. In doing this, we challenge society to evolve into an existence where violence is not an acceptable part of daily life. 


The mission of the CSU Monterey Bay Police Department (UPD) is to protect life and property with a commitment to professionalism and community cooperation. UPD is committed to enhancing the safety of all our students, staff, and faculty, as well as the greater community. Therefore, we are proud to offer R.A.D. Systems self defense classes in cooperation with CSUMB staff members - all of which are Nationally Certified R.A.D. Instructors.
*Currently R.A.D. is only offered for women on the CSUMB campus. Please check the R.A.D. Headquarters website for other classes in the area.
