What Our Clients Are Saying

“What a fantastic group of training professionals! They are constantly availing themselves of every possible personal defense method – every opportunity for continuing education, to make lives safer. They are also modifying the skills used by agencies like the Secret Service and State Department to protect VIP’s, to teach Pretty Loaded students and clients how to better protect family members – particularly children. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to hear the team speak on awareness, empowerment and defense, you need to get it on your list!”

Rick Colliver– Security Director, Time Warner Cable and Author, Principal Protection; Lessons Learned

“We had Sanford Strong speak to our organization in 2005. He was the retired Sgt. from San Diego who used to appear on America’s Most wanted and spoke on safety, awareness, and self-defense. He wrote the book Strong on Defense. You seem to have put together the modern day version of this training that hits close to my heart. I organize association meetings for private investigators and security professionals all over the world.”

Bob Heales– GLOBAL INTELLIGENCE Executive Director, World Association of Detectives Chairman of the Board, Heales & Associates, Ltd., and
National Council of Investigation and Security Services

“Pretty Loaded has released their first video based seminar series on situational awareness and it is outstanding. I am confident that this seminar will save lives and it is something you should make sure everyone in your life sees.”

Jack Spirko, Founder, The Survival Podcast

“We engaged the Pretty Loaded group to speak at our annual Leadership Conference.  They presented an informative program, along with demonstrations, on situational awareness for business travelers along with a very interesting look at personal security in general.  Their program was highly rated by our attendees and their presentation created a buzz of conversation among our attendees.  They are professional and engaging presenters; they will make you rethink how you approach and respond to potentially dangerous situations.”
