RAD Edmonton offers two day basic physical defense training classes in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Day 1

Utilizing the R.A.D. student manual, students will be involved in discussions on topics which include risk reduction strategies, date rape, continuum of survival, defensive strategies and the basic principles of defense.

Day 2

Participating students will begin the process of hands on training. The techniques utilized by R.A.D. Systems are based on simple gross motor skills and are developed to the point they become instinctual through repetition.

For Life

Once you have completed the RAD Basic Course with us, you can participate again at any RAD course offered worldwide free of charge (your signed manual is your proof of purchase). We, at RAD Edmonton, reserve 5 spots for returning students in every course.

Our Story

Our Story

R.A.D. Edmonton is a non-profit organization that was established in 2005. Founder Constable Joe Spear, an officer with the local Police Service, has been a certified R.A.D. instructor since 1998 where he instructed classes predominantly at the University of Alberta. Those classes, however, were held primarily for University Students and Staff. RAD Edmonton was created so we could offer the option of RAD self-defense education to every woman in Edmonton and its' surrounding communities.

As with all RAD programs, graduates of RAD Edmonton classes can utilize the free return and practice policy to attend any public classes hosted by RAD Systems worldwide. "We encourage all students to return and practice skills learned in our Basic classes", states Spear.

All members of RAD Edmonton, both instructors and administrative staff, volunteer their hours to the organization. In addition to the classes they teach, instructors are required to maintain their certification with RAD Canada (nationally), and RAD Systems (internationally) each year.
