Nu? And Not So New…

Sure, this blog is new. Yaddada-yaddada. But, the neat stuff we do at and through  El HaLev to empower women, kids, older adults and people from vulnerable populations through the Martial Arts and Self-Defense, well, that’s not ‘new’. We’ve been doing that since 2003.

Haven’t heard about us? Well, here we are.  And I’m going to be posting about all kinds of things connected to the special brand mind-body-spirit self-protection and self-defense life skills  that we at El HaLev share everyday with people of all ages and from all walks of life.

As you may know, Israel is a pretty political place. Politics seems to be the Israeli national pastime — next to eating falafel and driving obnoxiously.

But what we do is not about politics. And it’s not about violence— so put away those protest signs.  It’s about right of all people to feel safe and secure in their homes and on their streets. And it’s about the responsibility each of us has to take action to improve communities, our families and ourselves.

Nu? As we tell visitors to our El HaLev Training Center in Jerusalem, ‘take the chips off your shoulders and stay awhile’.

Welcome to our world…
