Have been a member of CDK since January, tested into Level 2 in May. I couldn't part with this studio now! These folks are my family! Really top notch training, particularly from DJ Stephens, who's a gifted instructor, but DJ spent much of June in Israel upping his game, so it gave us an opportunity to get to know his assistant instructors a bit better. David, Gian, Jason, the two women who are instructors-in-training--they're all great. But all of my fellow students are great, too! I'm sparring regularly against Level 5 students, and they're all so patient and kind. It's hard core training, but everyone's so encouraging that you'll keep going.

I've been training Krav Maga under DJ Stephens for 3+ years. Excellent instructor, with a real gift for teaching, explaining concepts, and building people's confidence. He is a true inspiration. Confidence During Kaos! Highly recommend Krav Maga CDK to anyone interested in learning real self defense, wants to get fit, or learn a new skills. Fellow students are extremely friendly and supportive of your journey. Come check it out.

Krav Maga CDK is yet another great location affiliated with Krav Maga Worldwide and Krav Maga Maryland. Its instructors, led by DJ Stephens, are the best you can get in the world.

Krav Maga CDK is amazing! The instructors are passionate and knowledgeable about their craft. Since I started nine months ago, I’ve learned so much about how to defend myself in real-life situations and it’s given me greater confidence in myself. On top of that, each class is an incredible workout. I highly recommend!

I joined CDK about 5 months ago and it has been fantastic! I was looking for self-defense classes that were based on practicality and to make one feel more confident in stressful situations. After checking out CDK, I knew it would be perfect. The instructors are awesome, the gym is nice, and the other students are great - the little community within CDK is amazing, overall. The instructors and classmates are super helpful and incredibly supportive. I learn something new each class and I would definitely say that (as a woman) I feel more confident when going out. I would highly recommend for everyone!
