Born to Be a Badass

Sep 16, 2019

Tammy Yard McCracken is a woman on a mission! After years as a practicing psychologist and a martial artist, Tammy now runs a self-defense training center and travels across the nation teaching seminars with Rory Miller's Chiron Training and Violence Dynamics. She's also launching the #500Rising project, aimed at changing the statistics of violence against women by training women all through the U.S. and around the world in principle-based self-defense.


  • Common myths/beliefs that women have about safety
  • Changing from Krav Maga to principle-based self defense instruction, and why principles-based training is essential & effective
  • The #metoo movement and the new #500Rising movement
  • What women face in South Africa (complete opposite of statistical likelihood of experiencing violence in the US)
  • Must-know strategies women need to have
  • “We’ve been so, so deeply socially programmed for so many centuries [about] what we’re supposed to be versus what we actually ARE – which is [that] we have massive super-powers and whatever it takes to give yourself the opportunity to find out that that’s TRUTH… that’s what you should be doing.”
