You do not have to be a champion in our gym, but we will teach you to conduct yourself as one. We are the only active competition gym in the NWT, and the only gym currently affiliated with NWT Kickboxing and Boxing Canada.

Our competitive program is designed to develop a complete range of skills, while allowing each athlete to develop a style more suitable for them. We focus on the three C’ s of champion. Coachability, Concentration and Conditioning.

Our coaches are certified and experienced, with Head coach John Stanley being the only level three coach in the North. Coach Stanley has produced 9 National Combat Sport Champions, three of whom come from Yellowknife,  and over forty provincial champions nation-wide.

We pride ourselves on providing a comfortable, encouraging environment, so come try it, the first class is on us.
