Want To Travel Like A Badass?
Nervous about going out alone, either around your home or traveling abroad?
Want to be able to protect yourself and your loved ones wherever you go?
Have you been harassed? Assaulted? Abused? And had enough of that?!
Well I got your back!
Welcome to Tough Cookie Travel Self Defense, the first truly comprehensive women’s self defense online course that’s actually designed FOR women+ like you BY a woman who’s been through it too.
Because you are not alone. I’ve been where you are. I’ve been attacked and harassed. Felt uneasy walking down the street. Even as a trained martial artist and experienced traveler, I understand how painful and traumatizing it can be navigating this harsh world as a woman+.
Yet it's hard to know what to do about it. Learning self defense can seem daunting. Where do you even start? Does it have to be in person? Is it going to be physically difficult and time consuming? What if you're not very fit or strong? Unfortunately, the world of women’s self defense training has not offered us solutions that are truly thoughtful, practical, accessible, and women-minded.
This is the ULTIMATE guide for women+ like you to stay safer and stronger wherever you go.
It’s swift but mighty, with 8 easy modules, each jam packed with an average of 22 minutes of meaty video lessons, step-by-step instructions, homework assignments, and downloadable checklists. And yours truly right there (virtually at least), guiding you the whole way through.
Because you can learn this. You can become a badass Tough Cookie traveler.
You DO NOT need to be a big strong super fit superwoman to be able to defend yourself.
Self defense is NOT just about fighting. It’s about surviving. That’s why we call ourselves survivors, not fighters. So contrary to what all those men may tell you, you don’t need to be an expert fighter in order to survive. That’s not what Tough Cookie Travel Self Defense is all about.
It’s not going to be some super intense and difficult workout. There will be some physical training, but I promise it will be very simple and easy, and only one small part of this program. The far more rigorous exercise I will ask of you will be mental exercises. Because self defense is as mental as it is physical, maybe even more so.
Survival is about so much more than just knowing how to fight. It’s also about knowing how to...
Spot threats before they become violent.
Listen to your intuition and avoid or evade them.
Set and enforce boundaries to de-escalate them.
Then heal from trauma and build yourself back stronger.
Share your story and support others, so we all can be stronger together.
Move through your life with more confidence and strength, and make yourself less of an easy target.
Even the physical fighting skills must be learned from a woman’s perspective.
This Tough Cookie Self Defense system will teach you how to fight back smarter, especially for a smaller woman+ against a larger (most often male) assailant. You don’t have to be super big or buff to defend yourself. There is so much more you can do as a woman+ if you know how to leverage your body’s position, speed, and natural instincts with a few simple yet effective moves.
You’re already quite gifted at this if you can give yourself permission to own it. Your sensitivity is a superpower that can give you an advantage in fighting back or, better yet, in escaping the situation before it becomes violent.
Your ultimate goal is not to fight, but to escape to safety. It’s still self defense if you don’t fight at all.
So any women’s self defense training worth its salt needs to show you how to survive beyond fighting, ideally without ever having to fight, but being ready to fight if necessary -- both the mental and physical sides of self defense.
I created Tough Cookie Travel Self Defense to fill this need for women’s self defense that covers the entire spectrum of survival skills.
This is more comprehensive, holistic, and thoughtful women’s self defense training that truly speaks to a woman’s experience from a woman’s perspective. One that you can take online from anywhere, at any time, on your own schedule, and with the support of a global community of other women+ like you who are going through the same process. Because you are not alone, and we are stronger together.
That’s what Tough Cookie Travel Self Defense is all about.
Strength. Sensitivity. And Sisterhood.

I designed this Course for YOU. So you can learn however suits you best.
Learn anytime, anywhere, and whatever way you like with multiple training formats. Every lesson in every module comes with videos and their written transcripts, as well as downloadable PDFs of all the presented slides and worksheets to help you complete the homework exercises and drills. So you can do you however you will learn best and most effectively make it stick.
I created this as an online course for a reason. Partly because we’re in a pandemic that makes in-person training less safe. And it would be too ironic, not to mention dangerous, to make you learn how to stay safe in an unsafe environment. But even after this pandemic is over, online education is the future.
I want every woman+ to be able to learn these skills, wherever they are.
Of course, learning self defense does require physical practice. But there are always ways to supplement that with the help of items and people around you, while being guided by these online lessons. And I heartily encourage the supplementing of this program with other in-person training (I even recommend a few for you).
But I never want lack of access to in-person classes to prevent ANY woman+ from learning these vital skills.
You can also learn these skills no matter how much time you have.
I know you’ve got a lot on your plate, especially right now. Sure, learning self defense is one of those essential life necessities that’s worth the time commitment, but in reality I know that’s a very difficult thing to do. So I’m not going to ask for a lot of your time.
This Course is broken up into very small, digestible chunks. Each of the 8 modules contain 10-40 minutes of video lessons, with many of those broken up further into even shorter videos. So you never need to sit down with this Course for more than a few minutes at a time.
Even the most busiest boss lady can manage that, right? Especially if it means learning how to be an even stronger, tougher, badass-er Cookie. One lesson at a time.
Let me show you how easy learning self defense can be!
If you’re looking for a holistic, realistic, more womanly way to learn how to defend yourself, then this program is for you.
Go on and get my Tough Cookie Travel Self Defense Course now and see what we can do together!
But if you're still not sure, you don't have to just take my word for it.
Here's what other Tough Cookies are saying...
Rebecca and her Tough Cookie courses remind us gals that we’re all tough cookies at heart even if we don’t feel that way sometimes. The videos are fun – and funny – which puts some levity into what can be a serious and heavy subject. For me personally, I felt like the program enabled me to develop a heightened sense of awareness about my surroundings – especially once the sun goes down. I’d recommend the lessons to gals ready to step out of their comfort zones and get deeply in touch with their own inner tough cookies. So go ahead and take a bite outta Rebecca’s program!
– Amy Angelilli
As a single woman living alone in NYC, I knew having more self defense skills would be beneficial. I had no idea how beneficial until, just days after finishing this course, my skills were tested. Surprisingly I was able to stay calm, think clearly, and keep myself safe. Throughout this program, Rebecca reinforces that mindset is critical. This is powerful because I now feel capable as well as strong. I learned concrete self defense moves and so much more! Thank you Rebecca and Tough Cookie!
– Dr. Marcie Beigel
I am so grateful that I went through the Tough Cookie Self Defense program as it is likely to be life changing and potentially life saving. Rebecca has a compelling presentation style that brings levity and fun to the learning without diminishing the seriousness of the topic. Emphasis on how to avoid danger will impact my travels and everyday life as an adventurous independent woman. The skills and techniques will be useful to know in situations I hope not to encounter. If I do find myself in danger, the drills and practice prescribed will sure to be empowering. There isn’t a price I could put on that.
