About Us

We are the first US certified branch (by Grand Master Dennis Hanover himself and DSJJ President Guy Hanover) of the official Israeli Reality Based Martial Arts and Self Defense System, Hisardut, which has been recognized by the state of Israel since 1991.

Hisardut's first US branch was created in 2009 by Hezi Sheli to introduce this unique system to the US.

Our mission is to ensure all of our students, both kids and adults, have the necessary tools to defend themselves in the easiest and most effective way.

We use the same training methods established by Grand Master Dennis Hannover and work closely with him and his top black belts in Israel to ensure the best quality of training for our students.

Dennis Hisardut Jiu Jitsu teaches the original reality based MMA ("mixed martial arts"), combining and seamlessly integrating aspects of Karate (Shotokan and Kyokushinkai), Judo, Jiu Jitsu (Israeli, Japanese and Brazilian), Kick Boxing and Aikido together to form effective responses to street threats.

The system looks to educate and develop the individual, so that they have both the skills and the mindset to defend themselves and use this unique authentic elite Israeli self defense and offense technique against vicious and violent assaults - Defeating Violence with Honor.
