Social Unrest — Hate — Anti-Semitism

GSD's self-defense program is a movement focused on connecting communities that seek training with quality security experts, at a location near them and begin training immediately.

Oh yeah...we're Different

We are not a gym - our goal is to remove all barriers to life-saving training and make it accessible, affordable and sustainable to children and adults.

 

Due to our generous supporters, the first month of training for all accepted students in NYC are free

Stronger <--> Together

GSD works closely with all Jewish security and communal institutions such as Shomrim, Community Security Service (CSS) and JCRC's Community Security Initiative (CSI).

 

We have partnerships with hundreds of organizations to share our model of success and coordinate our efforts. Join us.
 

As random acts of violence and outright anti-Semitism skyrocket with barely any reaction from the broader public, we must become our own first responders.

The People Have Spoken!

YEHUDA, 24

I was attacked 2 months ago.

I never reported it.

I was praying for a program like this.

While every self defense program in NY stopped during the lockdown, I trained all the way through with GSD.

They get it done!

SARA, 31

ARON, 36

After a few weeks, I felt so empowered. I can't believe the difference in such a short time.

GSD is honored to train the largest group of Orthodox Jews in the U.S. 

For over two years and steps from 770 (Chabad World Headquarters), GSD trains 100+ students each week in situational awareness and self-defense.
But we are humbled at what this community has taught us.
