Learn to Stay Safe. Have Fun.
Change EVERYTHING.

Using selective enrollment, we will identify future community leaders and provide them with the skills they need to change the antisemitism narrative. By committing to our program, the next generation of Jewish leaders will embody Jewish pride, and be prepared to overcome bullying, aggression, and hatred wherever they go. They will no longer accept being a victim, but welcome their Jewish identity as an undeniable strength.

Fundamentals Classes

An introductory class (or short series of classes) teaching key self-defense skills. This program encourages students to try martial arts techniques for the first time and gain confidence in their abilities. Fundamental classes can be tailored to the needs of the group

The Defender Course

Our Defender Course curriculum focuses on skill and confidence-building to address potential conflict scenarios. Participants in the course will learn how to stand up to intimidation tactics, and leverage self-defense to either de-escalate or disengage from the most common threatening environments. The course provides learning in 25 unique self-defense skills

The Protector Course

Our advanced Protector Course curriculum offers students advanced skill development to manage and control situations where they are outnumbered, face hostile and aggressive attackers, or are stepping in to help resolve confrontations for others.

The Elite Team

The Elite Team is a continuous training program for students who complete both Defender and Protector Courses. The Elite level will introduce students to experts in the world of martial arts, as well as leadership training, Israel education and Jewish values. Students will have access to monthly seminar classes and will be welcomed on StandStrong regional retreats to train with other Elite participants from across the country. Students training in our Elite Team program will be eligible for selection into our instructor course, so that they can teach the Defender Course to new students starting their StandStrong journey.
