Dedication, consistency, perseverance

To succeed, choose an environment compatible with your goals




Our story and purpose

The Blue Cat Boxing Club was founded in 1999. Starting with limited funds, and a small, confined space with no air flow and uneven cement floors, new members just kept showing up. It became evident the club served a community need, and demand progressed unabated.

In January 2008 we expanded to our current location on Beaubien, where we have remained to this day. The club has endured, with thanks to the pivotal contributions from our members throughout, founded with the following guiding principles:


Boxing is an amazing and challenging sport. The primary goal of the club is to provide an environment that makes boxing accessible to you, no matter your background, gender, profession or other qualities.


Boxing can be a safe sport, when it is practised conscientiously and under strict attention. We provide a safe environment for you to learn the sport, allowing the positive qualities of boxing to emerge and flourish.


Boxing is hard. In the club, the workouts are designed to push you to your personal physical limits. It requires hard work and consistency to survive, and we reinforce those principles throughout.


In the ring, eventually you will confront your mental, emotional and physical boundaries. We facilitate the journey to your limits and subsequently to traverse your personal barriers.

Physical, mental, emotional boundaries

Boxing is an art and a science. The barriers a performance athlete confronts are both intrinsic and environmental. To challenge their limits, the athlete depends on practise, preparation, teamwork and coaching. The sport of boxing presents additional demands in the face of violence, physical harm and loss of agency. Our role is to facilitate and guide you as an athlete, to traverse your boundaries and master self.

A key component of boxing is understanding space and distance, and creating boundaries through physical means.

OktoberFIST - 2012

A boxer must decide whether to engage, move or defend. Effective choices are often counterintuitive. They result from years of practise, while learning to temper preconceptions and intrinsic reactions to fear and conflict.
