Women-Only Counter-Stalking Seminar

Over one in seven women have experienced stalking, and women are twice as likely as men to be stalked. This training will develop skills to identify and respond to an individual who is threateningly following you.

In an urban space like Boston, crowds are chaotic and disorienting. We will learn how to make sense of the area around you, how to observe the people in your proximity, and how use the environment to draw out a pursuer. Training will conclude with a final simulation, applying your "new skills" to leave a bar at night and get safely to public transit while identifying and responding to an unknown pursuer.

Instructor Charles Simpson holds an M.S. in Security and Resilience Studies, and will be assisted in the design and execution of the seminar with a security consultant from Washington, D.C.

We will meet at the State Street T stop in downtown Boston at 6:00 pm Friday, April 13, and Saturday, April 14. We can take up to 10 people each night. If some of the group would like to meet at the gym and take the T in together we can arrange that as well. Training will run from 6:00-8:30 pm and the cost is $85 per person.  

Space is limited to 20 participants, 10 each night.  This unique seminar will fill up quickly so register today via email at or at the front desk.  Please specify which day you'd like to attend: Friday, April 13, or Saturday, April 14.

New Ground Class

We will be adding a second ground class starting this Saturday, January 13, at 9:05am. With MMA and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu becoming more and more popular each year, we need to be able to defend ourselves in a ground fight. If you are uncomfortable on the ground, these classes will make you love it, so we encourage everyone to attend.

Both our ground classes are open to all members regardless of belt level at no extra charge. Take advantage of the opportunity to grow your ground game!

Note: There is no change to the Saturday Level 1 class.

Closed January 4

Alpha Krav Maga Boston will be closed Thursday, January 4, for all classes due to severe weather.  We will re-open on Saturday, January 6, for our regular scheduled classes.

This was a short week to start the new year. Our coaches are looking forward to seeing everybody in class this Saturday working towards their goals.  

Enjoy the snow and stay safe!

January Stripe: White


In January, our members will be working towards their White Stripe and finding another "gear."  White is the color of lightening, which represents speed. Speed is one of the characteristics of a champion and will be incorporated into our training this month as well as all other aspects of our lives.  

The Stripe Test will be held January 27-31 during regular scheduled classes. Coaches will be available before, during and after classes to ensure you pass your stripe. If for some reason you do not, they will spend time working with you on what needs improvement and will reschedule a make up test in order to keep you on track in pursuing your goals in 2018.

Looking forward to an awesome year of training!

Making 2018 Your Best Year Yet

We hope you had a great holiday and enjoyed a little time away from work and training. Now we are on to 2018!

Our goal for 2018 is to help our members improve all aspects of their life. By focusing each month on building the characteristics of a champion and emphasizing small term goals, you will be successful at attaining any long term goal you wish to achieve.

All our coaches are very excited to get started and are looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow (Tuesday, January 2) when we reopen for classes.

Beginning this week, Level 3-5 Classes will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays at 630pm and Thursdays at 730pm. All other classes will remain the same until further notice.
