About Sokol New York

The mission of Sokol New York is to provide fitness and community for individuals and families through physical, educational, cultural and social activities.

Founded in 1867, Sokol New York is part of a nation-wide organization called American Sokol. Czechoslovakian immigrants brought this movement with them to America

and the organization continues to embrace the Sokol credo:

β€œA sound mind in a sound body.”

Sokol is the Czech word for falcon. The falcon symbol was chosen for its power, endurance and keen perception.

Nazdar, which you may hear at the end of your Sokol class, translates to mean β€œon to success.”
