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

Foundational Self-Defense (Women Only)

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.

Kalamazoo Combatives’ 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, but sometimes we do them in one day as well.

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


Coming in 2020: Women’s Advanced Self-Defense, Aerosol Defense, Keychain Defense, & Defense against weapons. Please call us or watch the schedule for these classes to appear in 2020. (Foundational Self-Defense is required before taking these other courses. Please ask for details).
