Sofia believes in keeping you smart and safe.  


PlayitSafe has taught hundreds of thousands of people to “Go Chihuahua Crazy!”™ and have seen first-hand how our unique teaching philosophy changes lives. Even a small child knows it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.  For our young ladies and women, we use the Jane Jitsu method to maximize their strengths and negate the strengths of the attacker. We emphasize leverage, movement, and attitude, not size and strength. These techniques give you the upper hand in a fight, no matter the size of your attacker.


The combination of PlayitSafe and the Jane Jitsu method gives our students the flexibility to become highly adaptive to their surroundings and  capable of overcoming a plethora of adverse circumstances and personal attacks. While no system can reduce the risk of attack to zero, practicing our techniques will greatly reduce your chances for attack by making you a hard target.

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.

“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.”
