Karate rabbi's answer to 'Knockout Game'

 Rabbi Sensei Gary Moskowitz in the air

There’s a solution to the problem of New York Jews being singled out by “Knockout Game” attackers, says a New York rabbi turned Karate sensei.

Teach them martial arts.

When Rabbi Gary Moskowitz, now 56, was growing up in the Soundview section of the Bronx, he got beaten up a lot, he recalls. So he took up karate.

At age 14, he went to a Jewish Defense League summer camp.

“I came back, and I was able to do 400 pushups,” he told the New York Post.

Black mobs routinely terrorize cities across the country, but the media and government are silent.
Now he’s reaching out to city Jews who are being targeted by the “Knockout the Jew” criminals.

“I wore a yarmulke, and I was a target,” he said. “I was once dragged up six stories to a rooftop by a gang. … They held me over the ledge.”

  1. I admire his intent and of course fitness and self-reliance are very much to be desired, but in realistic terms the martial arts won't help you against a gang. It's why we insist on the right to armed self-defense, so that even the weakest among us - - the aged, the crippled - - have a reasonable chance to defend themselves against an individual(s) who may be much stronger than themselves. Anything less is oppression by an uncaring State.
