Kore Self Defense Phase 2 Training Schedule

Krav Maga is based on simple principles and instinctive movements. This reality-based system is designed to teach street-tested self defense in the shortest amount of time possible.

Learn to defend against common chokes, grabs, and bearhugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks. Equally important, Krav Maga teaches you to function during the stress and psychological trauma of a sudden/violent encounter. You will also learn how to gain power over your own fight/flight responses so you can choose the correct solution to any situation.

Kore Krav Maga features Israeli trained and certified Instructors with direct Lineage to the founder, Imi Lichtenfeld (Sde-Or).

We invite you to train with the most dynamic, practical, and easily learned self-defense system in Loudoun County. Kore Self-Defense & Krav Maga is committed to providing the most up-to-date self-defense training possible. The instructors continuously research training methodologies & trends in violence to ensure Kore’s curriculum is effective and relevant.

deniz-karadeniz “I’ve been going to Kore Krav Maga for over a year now mainly attending their diverse classes, one day doing fitness, one day kick boxing, one day practice etc. All the instructors are true professionals and enjoy what they are doing. Since they get so much of the excitement, they teach you to have fun while learning to defend yourself. I was so impressed with the process, I had my son start their kids class.”
– Deniz Karadeniz

angel-donn “I came here once on a free class and I have been coming back constantly eager to learn more! I know how to somersault now, defend when attackers are coming from behind and front, attacking, blocking, etc. I would recommend this to young children and adults because this is such a comfortable environment.”
