Come To Your Own Rescue







Legion was the first non-profit in the United-States dedicated to training Jews and Jewish allies to defend themselves. Outside of the IDF, we are the largest organized group of Jews in the world training in Krav Maga - our graduates number in the thousands.


Founded in 2014 in response to rising attacks against Jews, we train our members in self-defense, counter-terrorism, and combat first aid. We have experts from the world of martial arts, the U.S. & Israeli Military, Law Enforcement, and Intelligence Services. 



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

You are never too young or too old to train how to better protect yourselves. All potential trainees, no matter how experienced, go through the same process.
