Play it Safe: Self Defense for Young Girls - CLOSED
In partnership with Defense in Heels, PLAY IT SAFE is a fun, interactive, age appropriate self-defense method that teaches Brownies and Juniors to respond appropriately to unique challenges they might face including: dealing with bullies, friendship drama, stranger awareness, in-appropriate touch from someone they might know, and abduction defense.
PLAY IT SAFE is based on a simple but very effective step-by-step approach where students role-play their techniques against trained instructors in age-appropriate scenarios. This empowering class teaches children ages 7 to 11 years to be aware of their surroundings, project confidence, set boundaries with their voice, and trust their intuition.This is reinforced through hands-on, repetitive training. Brownies and Juniors will role-play with a mock "stranger" and a mock "bully", while being coached by an instructor. Wear casual, comfortable clothes and bring bottled water. Girl Scouts will earn the Play It Safe Go Chihuahua Crazy! fun patch.
