We develop leaders with a warrior spirit who lead, adapt, overcome, and are victorious in the face of adversity.
Legion Elite Academy was born out of a desire to provide an antidote to the distracted world in which our children live. We hope to bring real adventure and relationship into the lives of our cadets as a substitute to the artificial variety provided from movies, video games and social media
Throughout the program, cadets learn how to defend themselves in hand-to-hand combat. They learn weapon techniques. They learn survival skills such as knot tying, first aid and shelter building. As a team, they tackle challenges modeled on the military’s problem-solving obstacle courses. Using a leadership structure in which veteran Students lead squads of seven or eight cadets, every warrior is encouraged, stretched physically and mentally, made to feel part of a team – and forever changed by their Legion Elite experience.
Enrollment in Legion Elite Academy grants access to periodic team activities during the year. Participation in these events builds a sense of team amongst the cadets and offers an opportunity for cadets to test their skills acquired throughout the year. potential activities include adventure courses, escape rooms, obstacle course races, and hiking/backpacking trips.
A weekly martial arts class is available for all cadets. the focus of the class is self-defense and will combine techniques from several martial arts including Pekiti Tersia Kali, Taekwondo, Hapkido, and Ju-Jitsu. Cadets will learn discipline, and gain confidence while preparing themselves to perform effectively in defense of their own well-being, or the well being of others.
