Play It Safe

Practical Self-Defense Training in a one session format.

Fun. Empowering & Age Appropriate.



“PLAYITSAFE”© gives children the confidence and increased awareness skills that could keep them from potential danger.

We teach our students to “GO CHIHUAHUA CRAZY!”


PLAYITSAFE© is a fun, interactive, age appropriate method that teaches students to respond appropriately to unique challenges they might face such as: dealing with bullies, friendship drama, stranger awareness, in-appropriate touch from someone they might know and abduction defense.

PlayItSafe© has been designed to offer the best and most practical self-defense techniques in realistic assault situations for both girls and boys.

PLAYITSAFE© is based on a simple but very effective step-by-step approach where students role-play their techniques against trained instructors in age-appropriate scenarios. This 2-hour empowering class teaches children ages 4 to 13 years, to be aware of their surroundings, project confidence, set boundaries with their voice and trust their intuition. This is reinforced through hands-on, repetitive training. Students will role-play with a mock “stranger” and a mock “bully”, while being coached by an instructor.
