The Grapevine Police Department offers a free 4-week women's self-defense course by Sergeant Jason Keller. Since inception (2010), nearly 1000 women in Grapevine have completed Self-Defense, Rape Aggression Defense Basic Personal Defense System (R.A.D.) training. Courses are typically offered several times per year and can be customized for any group.
RAD-Systems Basic Personal Defense System, is a national program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques taught for women only. All courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors. The goal of R.A.D. is to provide realistic self-defense options to women, regardless of their level of physical conditioning.
Students at all levels of ability, age, experience, and strength will be provided
with techniques and information that can be effectively used from the first day
of class. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program, nor does it require students to
be athletes in training to succeed.
The R.A.D. system will provide students with the knowledge to make an educated
decision about personal defense. We provide information on physical and non-
physical options, as well as insight into the attacker mindset. Every student
receives a manual for reference and practice. Once a student has completed a
R.A.D. program, their signed manual becomes a ticket for free lifetime return
and practice with any R.A.D. instructor in the US and Canada.
The widespread acceptance of the R.A.D. system is due to the ease, simplicity,
and effectiveness of our tactics, solid research, legal defensibility, and unique
The next class will be announced soon.
