You might remember Jonathon Lipnicki as the little kid in "Jerry Maguire" or"Stuart Little". Well, he's all grown up now and using his MMA skills to defend the Orthodox Jewish community.
Jonathan said there's been a lot of antisemitic hate crimes and violence towards Jews in the L.A. area. People have even tried running over children or shootingthem with paint balls.
When he learned of the incident last May where a group of pro-Palestinian men attacked Jewish diners, it inspired him to team up with his martial artist friend and actor Remi Franklin to create a support system to prevent future attacks.
Jonathan said their goal is, quote, "to make sure people got home and to the synagogue safely . . . families, women, children, because everybody should have the right to worship without being discriminated against."
He added, quote, "A lot of us are martial artists or own martial arts gyms and not all of us are Jewish. It's just people wanting to help other people."
