Instructor/owner Laurie Latham gives hands on training to a girl scout during a PlayItSafe class.

PlayItSafe Class

AZ PLAY IT SAFE DEFENSE is a fun, interactive, age appropriate method that teaches students to respond appropriately to unique challenges they must face such as, dealing with bullies, stranger awareness and abduction defense. AZ PLAY IT SAFE DEFENSE is based on simple but very effective step-by-step approach where students practice their techniques against trained instructors in age appropriate scenarios. This 2-hour empowering class teaches children and women to be aware if their surroundings, project confidence, set boundaries and trust their intuition. This can only come from hands-on, repetitive training. Students will role-play with a mock “Stranger” and a mock “Bully” while being coached by an instructor.

Mission Statement:
To empower children to handle the myriad of challenges they face on a daily basis, to take control of their lives and maintain that control as they grow without being fearful. To teach women and children to project confidence through their body language and to react quickly if necessary. To increase our students level of awareness through fun and interactive awareness training. To build our student's self-esteem by helping them become as self-reliant as possible in the face of danger. To reinforce that fighting is not a good thing and should be avoided at all costs. However, if fighting is unavoidable, know that self-defense is not a game. To enable parents to relax their own fears and concerns once they see their children's capacity to respond in difficult circumstances
