Rape Aggression Device (RAD)

The RAD program at ISU is a free twelve hour class that may be broken down into two or more sessions. The final night of class is known as "Simulation Night". Students participate in a simulated attack, in an effort to reinforce the skills they have learned. Protective gear is provided and all simulations are monitored by trained RAD Instructors.

For more information contact:

Lt. David Smith (Instructor) 812-237-4016,

Sgt. Jacquelyn Smith (Instructor) 812-237-5555,

The RAD System is a program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques. The RAD system is a comprehensive course for women that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. RAD is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses are taught by certified RAD Instructors, Lt. David Smith and Sgt. Jacquelyn Smith. A workbook/reference manual, which outlines the entire physical defense program for reference and continuous personal growth, is provided at no cost.

The RAD System of physical defense is currently being taught at many colleges and universities. The growing, wide spread acceptance of this system is primarily due to the ease, simplicity and effectiveness of our tactics. Solid research, legal defensibility and unique teaching methodology. The Rape Aggression Defense System is dedicated to teaching women defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assault, by utilizing easy, effective and proven self-defense/martial arts tactics.

The RAD System of realistic defense will provide a woman with the knowledge to make an educated decision about resistance. RAD Systems operate on the premise that a spontaneous violent attack will stimulate a natural desire to resist, on the part of the victim (supported by research). We educate women about "The Flight or Fight Syndrome", while showing them that enhancing their option of physical defense is not only prudent, but a necessity if natural resistance is to be effective.

Safety and survival in today's world requires a definite course of action. We provide effective options by teaching women to take an active role in their own self-defense and psychological well being.
