Best of Boston

1982 Best Bodyguard

Glenn Beckner

Then again, not everyone can build himself up to the point that he won’t get sand kicked in his face. Beckner’s bodyguard service provides both personal security and discreet protection at large gatherings. “There are some people, especially in smaller entrepreneurial companies, who are the brains of the whole operation,” Beckner explains. “They can’t be replaced.” So Beckner offers a staff of black-belt-level martial-arts experts who also know CPR, First Aid, and the proper handling of weapons. Beckner’s service is not cheap, so if cost counts, you’re probably better off with general workouts and karate classes elsewhere.
