[01/07/20]   😝 Hate to do this: Cancelling ALL Classes tonight due to crappy road conditions. Stay home - Stay safe.

There may be an impact on tonight's classes We will email and post here if there is a cancellation for tonight. If the snow happens AND starts early enough the roads get clear we'll be training as usual. Stay tuned ....

A period of heavy snow this afternoon likely resulting in a quick 2-4 inches. Driving conditions will be comprised during the afternoon. Super fast moving storm with a 1pm to 7pm window. Notice how the storm is really focused on our area this around. After that...the pattern turns extremely hostile to snow for a big part of January.

Kore Self-Defense in Ashburn VA is proud to be the birthplace of the #500Rising project. Kore's general training program is the reason for it in many ways because we started as a Krav school and most Krav schools are dominantly male. Not Kore. We have consistently maintained a near 50% male/female ratio. #koreselfdefense #kravmaga #selfdefense #womenselfdefence #selfdefence #loveloudoun #oneloudoun #leesburgva #sterlingva #chriong training

Kore's new youth mentorship program is underway - registration completes this week. Build confidence, overcome self-consciousness, strength, leadership, empathy, organization, attention to detail, and so much more by enrolling your Alpha, Bravo or Delta team member.

Yup. Make a note!
