OK, for the VioDy 2017 folks and those who have trained and learned about how you need 2 movements that affect the universe to break your freeze. I had a dream earlier this week where I saw someone who seemed skeptical and I ran to get away. I ended up in a bathroom and hoping he wasn't going to follow me in there. It's a dream I didn't make the right decision in that regard. I could see him walk in to the ladies room because I could see his feet under the barrier when you first enter the bathroom. I saw they were men's sneakers and I was standing far away and knew that a possible bad outcome was going to happen. So he is threatening me from a distance and I am frozen. Quite literally frozen because I'm dreaming and I'm pretty sure I was in sleep paralysis mode at the time and couldn't physically respond in the dream or in my real life state asleep. In my head in the dream I was thinking I need to movements to affect the universe I need to do those now. So what ended up waking me up and breaking the freeze was the initial part of the defense from side choke were you grind slab and relieve the choke at the same time because those were two simultaneous moves. I found it interesting how my brain process the training on the level in my dreams to a recognize the possible bad outcome because there was somebody who was sketchy and be to make the conscious decision to have two simultaneous actions that affected the universe. That's my Friday story!

The stairs look daunting before the first step. Become a "hard target" & reduce the chances of being targeted for violence in a program specific to adults with a little mileage under the hood.

Our Story

Make your every-day life better by learning how to manage conflict and violence from the ground up. Self-Defense should be more than just punching and kicking. Training at Kore Self-Defense & Krav Maga is a fusion of reality-based-self-defense, Krav Maga, fitness, and mental conditioning. You will also find traces of Filipino Martial Arts (FMA), BJJ, and a smattering of other traditional approaches. Why? If it applies to modern problems and the physics are simple, efficient and effective - the skill is applicable to self-defense.

If a skill can help our students prevail in a violent encounter - or potentially violent encounter - we integrate it in our curriculum.

And like you, we are a work in progress. Always.

In The Beginning...

When we started running classes, we were in borrowed space in the corner of a gym that isn’t around anymore...2 gyms in fact, both have closed up shop but we dug in, rented our own space and took a stand. July 2018 we are moving to our new home on Beaumeade Circle with more space and better facilities.

When we opened our doors to students back in 2012, we were strictly Krav Maga. But - and this is a big but - our sole purpose for opening was to be a self-defense training center and quickly realized sticking to a Krav Only approach would:

a) create a traditional martial arts training mindset in our students and

b) prevent us from being as fluid and adaptive as the violence we train for. That’s a problem.

So, we fixed it.

Today Forward...

We are still dominantly Krav based in our curriculum and for many years we were directly affiliated with Krav Maga Global, one of the largest Krav Maga Martial Arts Systems based in Israel. The organizational structure of a martial arts system helps keep programs around the globe consistent. Unfortunately, consistency requires regulations preventing adaptation to the needs of specific students.

While the physical gauntlet of a 10 hour skills/rank test was appealing to our founding team, we realized holding back important skills until our students passed arduous physical rank testing was antithetical to our self-defense mindset. We are now a part of the Violence Dynamics community, an Active Krav Maga Network/University directed by Krav Maga Global’s first U.S. Director, and continously to seek external training opportunities for our instructors so that we stay current and progressive.

Ranking is still an option for our students and we encourage the personal goal setting associated with testing. Moving up in rank at Kore requires more than good fighting skills, you must also demonstrate the ability to apply decision-making preventing violent encounters.

We continue to learn and discover tools, techniques and teaching paradigms making our students - our family - safer, stronger, more resilient people. And that means you. You walk through our doors as a guest and if you stay, you are family. We are a physically safe place to do emotionally dangerous things & an emotionally safe place to do physically dangerous things.
