No. The core of a tornado is the area in which the strongest winds occur. Although the center itself may be calm in some tornadoes, you would still have to get through the intense winds of the tornado both going in and going out. Additionally, this eyelike structure is much smaller than the eye of a hurricane and would not likely be over any particular spot for more than a few seconds.
