Learn Self Defense!

Every criminal has two fundamental fears:

The fear of being caught…

…and the fear of being hurt. 

Our combination of self defense techniques teach children and women to respond quickly and appropriately to unique challenges they might encounter. Our training provides students with confidence through situational awareness techniques that teach them to become a very hard target. Criminals hate hard targets.

We can teach you the skills to protect yourself.

See What Our Clients Are Saying…

“As psychotherapists, my husband and I have worked with many children, teens, and adults who have experienced sexual abuse, bullying, and other kinds of violence. Recently, I took some children to a PlayItSafe self-defense class and was very impressed with the program. Tracie and her fellow instructor presented valuable verbal and physical techniques in a fun and engaging way. They empowered the children to listen to their intuition, use their voices, handle conflict effectively, and defend themselves when appropriate. Their message was hopeful and powerful. I highly recommend PlayItSafe classes to children, teens, and women who want to go out into the world with greater confidence, feeling prepared to handle difficult or dangerous situations if they should arise.
