Kore Self Defense and Krav Maga Membership

Build mental toughness, emotional/physical endurance, and improve fitness while training with the most elite Krav Maga system in the world. Your instructors pass the most rigorous training standards in the industry. What’s more? The instructor training requirements far surpass what most Law Enforcement instructor certification programs require for professionals in their own industry!



After your first testing, you become a member of the Krav Maga Global system. You are part of the original, and therefore, most elite Krav Maga training system in the world.

It Matters.  Training is fun and in the back of your mind, you know you are training in self-defense. Train in a system untested and without a proven record of life-saving success among students and your fun hobby becomes a liability.

  • Unlimited training in the majority of our scheduled classes (a few are restricted by skill).
  • Membership includes Tai Chi classes, great for improving structure, balance and control.
  • One-on-one tutorials before testing in our Open Mat & Curriculum Reviews.

  • A variety of contract options, all with simple cancellation options.
  • Signing Up? You get our new-member package including two training shirts, training curriculum, your first month’s tuition & more.
  • Previous Krav Maga training/rank earned? When a rank test is scheduled, we’ll test you up to the most commensurate rank in our program. Your previous training is valuable and we will honor the hard work you have already engaged.

Standard adult rates are market researched at 149/month. We are not the cheapest and we are not the most expensive program in Northern Virginia. Are we more than a box-gym membership? Yes. Every class you attend is instructed by highly qualified instructors with continuing education requirements. Larger classes include assistant instructors and senior students on-deck to ensure personal attention.

The adage, you get what you pay for, is particularly relevant in self-defense. Be cautious about entrusting your training to an instructor certified in a single weekend course. Our lead instructors have years of training & experience while our instructor interns are closely supervised.
