Apply now for The Legion—Jewish Self-Defense and Energy Preparedness

Did you know that Jews make up only 1.8% of the United States’ population, yet they are the victims of the majority of religiously motivated attacks? The Legion offers an exclusive 9-month training program for the Jewish community that includes both physical self-defense training in Krav Maga, and classroom-based preparedness training. Our mission is to train the Jewish community to defend themselves in the wake of spiking anti-Semitism. Class starts on Thursday, September 7, so be sure to register today. 

Legion offers an exclusive training program that includes physical self-defense training in the form of Krav Maga, as well as defense against an active shooter, situational awareness, and combat first aid. The Legion was the first non-profit in the United-States dedicated to training Jews and Jewish allies to defend themselves. Outside of the IDF, it is the largest organized group of Jews in the world training in Krav Maga.

The Legion originated in New York City, and now offers training in New York City, Brooklyn, NY, and West Hartford CT, and have partner gyms across the United States and the world, which offer significant discounts to students in our programs because they believe in our mission.
