Women's Group Training / Workshops
It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial on behalf of Caution Unlimited. I first met Cathy at the 2009 Women's Expo at the Phoenix Civic Center where she and her company, Caution Unlimited, were among the sea of vendors displaying their services for the needs of women today. What attracted me to her booth was Cathy herself. She is a dynamo packaged in a 5'2” petite body showing women you don't need to be huge to defend yourself. As I watched her explain a product that she sells and the classes she offers and personally trains, I became increasingly aware of the importance of a woman's need to know what to do in a variety of dangerous situations. I, myself was a victim of a crime, being robbed at gunpoint, in a parking lot by two very large men.
I signed up in February, 2010, for one of Caution Unlimited's many Self-Defense/TASER™ training classes…and I am glad I did.
The intense, three hour class, catering to women and children, was taught and instructed with a no bull, tell it like it is, we live in a different world, approach to self-defense. The trainer discussed how an attacker, be it man or woman selects his/her target. She talked and demonstrated the first line of defense tactic to skillfully communicate verbally to stop a further altercation with a would-be attacker. She covered home invasion and what we would have in our homes that most of us would not even think of as weapons. She showed us different ways an attacker could potentially approach his victim, whether it be a frontal assault, an attack from behind, and what to do in a knife attack. We learned about places to avoid, things to be aware of and so much more. She would first demonstrate the technique and we would partner with a classmate to work together and practice these moves. The last part of the class was on the Taser™, a non-lethal weapon and perhaps a much safer alternative to the hand gun. I was amazed by what this compact devise could do and have ordered one for myself.
I walked away from this class feeling less afraid, more aware of surroundings and empowered. This course was the best invest-ment in saving my life that I could ever have taken. I would highly recommend this to women of all ages.
My daughter and I had the pleasure of taking instruction from Caution Unlimited a couple weeks ago. What an eye-opener! We learned some standard verbal and physical techniques to repulse /counter unwanted contact. The trainer's expertise and down-to-earth physical demonstrations allowed us to go into topics and counter moves we hadn't even verbally addressed: like how to react in a "shove-to-rape" scenario. Our attitudes of blissful ignorance transformed into vigilant empowerment! Thank You! My daughter will be leaving for college soon, and I strongly encourage this training for both the sake of the parent and young adult. Although this was the first session of it's kind for either of us (we aren't formally trained in any self-defense modality) it won't be the last! Highly commend (and recommend!) Caution Unlimited.

My name is Lee Anne Kline and I recently hired Caution Unlimited to teach a self-defense class to my women's group. Everyone throughly enjoyed it.
The way the trainer was able to communicate
her knowledge was not only interesting and very helpful but we also
had alot of fun too! Our women's group all agreed that before the class we all were TARGETS.. We left feeling a lot more confident, armed with knowledge and techniques to defend ourselves. I would
highly recommend this course. Thank you Caution Unlimited and we do plan to have you
back to teach us some more!!!!!!
Gilbert Veterinary Hospital
I just wanted to write to thank you for the self-defense class you did for me and my employees. Since we are a staff of 30 women it was especially helpful. All of us really learned a lot of how to be more aware of our surroundings, and how not to be a victim. Your real life stories were so interesting and kept everyone on the edge of their seats. I have never seen them so attentive to a speaker. The interactive portion was very helpful as well. To actually learn the moves and practice them I think will help us retain the information. Hopefully none of us will have to use anything we learned, but if we do I know we will be more prepared. Thank you!
PSCU Financial Services
Our employees at PSCU Financial Services enjoyed their sessions with Caution Unlimited and were able to walk away with valuable skills that the trainer demonstrated. The sessions were very informative and she was able to show us several ways to ward off an attacker. She shared real life experi-ences and to look at life at a more realistic perspective. We are looking forward in partnering with her in the near future. Thank you Caution Unlimited for an awesome experience!
“We had Caution Unlimited teach a workshop as a part of our employee wellness program. Friends and family of employees attended the event as well and everyone is raving about it! We learned a lot of techniques (verbal & physical) to use for various types of attacks. I feel better equipped to ward off an attacker and would recommend this course to anyone!”
The techniques were easy to grasp and "real world" applicable. I left feeling confident that I could defend myself, should the need ever arise.
Cathy is a dedicated professional who has a passion for training women to protect themselves against abuse, rape and other crimes. Her passion and energies are brought into the self-defense training she provides - making them fun, informative and most of all, useful! I highly recommend Cathy Gregg to anyone wanting professional self-defense instruction. She is caring and her trainings are fun!”
