The world Maccabee movement was a zionistic sport movement established with the vision of Max Nordau which expressed the idea of a muscular Judaism. The first club was established in Constantinople in 1895. It was successful and similar Jewish clubs were established in European cities following it, with names such as 'HaKoach,' 'Bar Kochva,' and 'HaGibor.' The movement became worldwide in 1921.
