About Victory Karate
Victory Karate combines Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Krav Maga into a very effective form of martial arts. We provide a special environment for kids and adults to thrive in martial arts. You will be amazed at the gains that you can make in your conditioning, flexibility and mental acuity. We offer both kids’ karate classes and adult karate classes 6 days a week at our Silver Spring studio.
Ibrahim Abdalla: Victory Karate is managed by Ibrahim Abdalla (Ibby or Mr. A, as the students refer to him), has been training in martial arts since 1972 (received his black belt in 1976) and is a former world karate sparring champion. Mr. A has been operating martial arts schools for over 25 years.
Mr. A has a passion for developing martial artists and working with students to develop their physical and mental well-being through martial arts. As students commit to martial arts with Mr. A and his team, their physical and mental skills will develop to levels they could not have dreamed of a few years earlier.
We are currently interviewing experienced karate instructors.
