Pink Diamond Defense is proud to announce that we are now Licensed and Certified instructors with PlayItSafe Defense, a children’s self-protection program that teaches children and young teens how to self-protect their physical, emotional, and sexual boundaries through the use of age appropriate material taught in a fun and engaging way.  Its founder, Tracie Arlington, is a fellow Jane Jitsu instructor and has been a mentor of ours for over 5 years. We are thrilled to be able to make our relationship with her official.  Her program has been featured nationally on Dr. Phil and The Doctors as well as multiple news stations in her local area. PlayItSafe Defense classes are a great fit for children’s groups of all ages because they present safety information in a fun and non-threatening way. We do offer a few PlayItSafe Defense classes through Pellissippi’s non-credit program during the summer, but most of our classes are hosted by private groups.  Please contact us for more information or to schedule a class.
