Alpha Krav Maga Boston Rocks!
Ariel wanted her birthday party to have a martial arts theme and we couldn’t have chosen a better place than Alpha Krav Maga in Malden. Not only was the party top notch, but all her friends showed up and made the day complete. Way to go Master Amato and team! – Adrienne S

STRIPE TESTING – GROWTH
We are very excited to have our members participate in our Stripe Testing this week. This is another opportunity to get one step closer to accomplishing their goals. This month we have been working towards our Green Stripe. Green represents growth and it is great to see our members getting out of their comfort zones in order to grow. We will be looking for this characteristic all week!

INTRODUCTION TO GROUND CLASS
On Thursday, November 8 from 7:30pm – 9:00pm we will be hosting an introduction to our ground classes. This class will cover why we train BJJ w/ Krav, and then an overview of how to play the “game” such as getting to ground, what is guard, guard passes and controlling positions. If there is time, we may even show a couple of submissions.
We have many students that are interested in our ground classes but my feel a bit uneasy about jumping right in. This intro class is a great opportunity to cover the basics so they can feel comfortable about joining the Wednesday evening and Saturday morning Ground Class. The seminar is free of charge as we feel it is important for all students to improve their ground techniques.
If you are interested in attending, please register via email or at the front desk.

PARENTS’ NIGHT OUT
In appreciation for all our parents and the amazing things they do for their children, we are offering them a parents’ night out. This event will take place on Friday, November 9 from 5:30-8:00pm.
All they have to do is drop their children off at our school where they will be safe and having a great time. The children will be doing physical activities and playing games. We will provide all the food and refreshments at no cost to our parents. All we ask is that the parents take some time for themselves and have fun, because they deserve it!
If you would like your child to participate in the Parents’ Night Out, please register at the front desk.
Thank you again for all you do!
