Women & Teen Self Defense Classes

Women and teens have to be more aware than ever. The statistics show it. Did you know that according to the U.S. Department of Justice, 1 out of every 4 women will be attacked or raped in her lifetime? Or that 90% of women assaulted knew their assailant? How about that the Women’s Self Defense Institute analyzed 3,000 assaults and found that 50% of the attackers fled from a woman who resisted? 




In this class students will cover situational awareness, attitude,

de-escalation, verbal and physical self defense tactics.  


- Verbal defense consists of dealing with mean girls and bully prevention (middle school and high school groups)

 - Physical defense consists of learning where to strike and how to strike by the use of pads and kick bags. 

 - What assailants look for in their victims – date, acquaintance, and stranger assaults.

We welcome ages 11 & UP



This course will be taught using a number of teaching methods including lecture with use of presentation/props, interactive discussions, scenario-based learning, and active physical engagement.

Continue with next level/college prep self defense instruction.  Next level instruction is powered by the Jane Jitsu Women’s Defense movement. The curriculum of this course will give individuals a comprehensive approach to remaining safe.  The instruction teaches defensive measures such as awareness training to defend against attacks, on-the-ground defense, escapes, abductions, sexual assault, and rape. Students will learn to understand the actions necessary to escape from multiple positions of vulnerability, grabs, and chokes.  Students are taught to physically use their own unique strengths against an assailant’s weakest targets and fight out of those assault scenarios. In addition, this course teaches safety and security best practices to avoid or mitigate the chances of being attacked by understanding indicators of threatening and predatory persons.

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.”
