RAD (Rape Aggression Defense, women’s only Self-Defense)

Basic Personal Defense (B.P.D.)

The Cornerstone of R.A.D. Systems, this basic course has its foundations in education and awareness. The course includes lecture, discussion and self-defense techniques suitable for women of all ages and abilities. Classes range from a minimum of nine to twelve hours plus in length, depending on the Instructor.

AZO Civil Services’ Chief Self-Defense Instructor Heather, along with help from her husband and instructor Brent conducts these Women’s Only course a multiple times per year. Typically these are done over the course of 2 or 3 days to break up the amount of time you are in the classroom and allowing you time to ‘digest’ the information from that day’s session.

Please contact AZO by phone to inquire about the upcoming classes and/or to speak to Heather or Brent for more details about the course.


Coming in 2019: Women’s Advanced Self-Defense, Aerosol Defense, Keychain Defense. Please call us or watch the schedule for these classes to appear in 2019. (R.A.D. BPD is required before taking these other courses).
