Studio & Directions

SEPS Women's Self-Defense Studio & Directions

The SEPS Women's Self-Defense and Personal Safety Program, runs every Saturday morning at 10 AM at:

Krav Maga Yashir
Charlestown Maritime Ctr (3 FL)
200 Terminal Street
Charlestown
MA 02129

The training facility is a 16 000 sq ft space, with a 4500 sq ft mat space, that is fitted with Olympic Standard/Grade Judo mats - this is one of the reasons students train barefoot, and can't wear jeans or other types of clothing that may have rivets, or sharp edges. All of the equipment used is top of the line.

When trying to locate the studio, don't rely solely on your GPS (Our studio is directly under the Tobin bridge, and if you come over the bridge, italic will believe you have arrived). There is free parking available.
