Struggle snuggles? Yup. If you’re really training for self-defense, you need to be prepared for people who train in popular martial arts but train with intent to use their powers for…well…not for good.

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.
