Note that we're officially supporting RequireJS, but not AngularAMD. That said, it should work. There should be no need for you to manually load kendo.core, since it's declared as a dependency in other Kendo files.
Here is a sample that works (RequireJS + Angular, but no AngularAMD): http://dojo.telerik.com/@mishoo/uHEBA
If you still can't get it to work please show us some code and we will try to provide a solution.
