DEBRIEFING

Straight from the Stiletto Sisters

    D.C.
    aka Agent Katerina Storm
    Downington, PA

  • “The skills I learned in hand to hand combat will help me be more aware of my surroundings and more confident in my day to day interactions with people. I had a lot of fun and enjoyed the program. ”

    P.S.
    aka Agent Miss Priss
    Elk Grove, CA

  • “I always thought a normal reaction to a hand to hand combat situation would be to fight, defend yourself and try to control or escape the situation. The interesting thing I learned is that the complete opposite is much more effective. Allowing yourself to go with the motions, remembering to breathe, thinking and planning gives you more opportunity to overpower someone. ”

    Nancy Mullin
    aka Agent Natasha Ashington
    Media, PA

  • “I think everyone could benefit from this! The training will help me to think more clearly and to react properly in certain situations. ”

I hadn’t even noticed. Now I will be paying more attention and, of course, having SO much fun working the room with my new Spy School skills! ”

    C.L.
    aka Agent Adrianna Luisa
    Massapequa Park, NY

  • “I work with clients addicted to illegal substances and there is always a chance a client may become violent. I now feel better prepared for any instances of this kind. I learned that my first reaction is not always the correct reaction and to assess the situation before acting or reacting. ”

    I loved all aspects and gained an overall confidence in all areas. So excited to dance sexy, evade an attacker, make money at pool and end the day with a delicious drink.

    I absolutely loved it. Would (and will) definitely recommend to friends. Total self confidence boost and great real world skills to take away.”

    Lea Palmieri
    Cosmo Radio, NYC

  • “I had the opportunity to attend the SSS Spy-girl weekend in Vegas last May. What an incredible experience!

    From Blackjack to Bullets... from Salsa to Self-defense... from Martinis to mega meals... totally action packed.

    Definitely, 3 of the most unforgettable days of 2008!

    Thank you Alana!”

    Mayuka Goenka
    India

  • “How soon can I go again!? I LOVED this experience. It's still a topic of party conversation months after the event. And truly, a once in a lifetime experience (until the next time). I learned to shoot a gun, I learned I’m a pretty good shot, I learned how to sweep a room, I learned not to shoot the innocent civilian, I learned to team with a group of women that were relative strangers. I learned to laugh in extreme situations. I came home and pondered-how can I give this to my staff? how can I go back with friends? A perfect weekend with wonderful hosts. My husband has been known to quip, “Yeah, I wouldn’t mess with your mother . . she’s been to spy school, you know.” I feel more confident, stronger, and have friends (that know how to cover my back) all over the country.

    Thanks to Stiletto Spy School, I am a force!”

    Sharon Soliday
    Portland, OR

  • “It was so great to be at SSS and completely forget who I was for the day as compared to my usual role as mom, chauffeur, homework helper, disciplinarian, cook, school volunteer, etc!I really was out of my daily element and had a whole day to do nothing but think of what I was doing at the moment, think about me, and feel a little like a sexy and dangerous new girl!Hopefully I will be bringing home some of those dance moves to incorporate into the daily vacuuming and shake things up a little!”

    Agent Mom
    Boston, MA

  • “Alana orchestrated a Stiletto Spy School weekend for a group of entrepreneurs in September 2008. From the martini mixing lesson to the army special forces training, the weekend was fun and exciting and I learned secrets that’ll come in handy throughout my life. Alana and her team pulled off a flawless event for us that we would never be able to do on our own--or find anywhere else.”

    Joyce Lasecke
    Minneapolis, MN

  • “As a breast cancer survivor, I really think a group such as a post-breast cancer wellness group could gain so much from this experience. Great way to gain strength and recapture all that cancer can take from you, especially feeling beautiful and trusting your body again. ”

    Shelly Stewart
    aka Agent Miss Kitty

  • “This was as much fun as I expected, but in a completely different way. I never expected to feel empowered or encouraged to think about myself in a whole new way. The instructors were amazing and I was grateful for the fun and caring environment they created. ”

    Colleen Duerr
    aka Agent Brick House

  • “I had many preconceived ideas about the training, especially the Hand to Hand Combat and Seductive Dance classes. I was pleasantly surprised at how different the classes were.
