The Membertou Boxing Club is a community-based boxing school that welcomes any and all through its doors who wish to learn about the art and sport.
To teach healthy living and everyday life skills through the art and sport of boxing.
Membertou Boxing Club strives to create healthy minds, bodies, and spirits through the art of boxing.
The Membertou Boxing Club was formally established in 2008 by coaches Greg and Daniel Martin, formerly of Glace Bay's Ring 73, and the Membertou Band Council. Housed at what residents simply referred to as "the gym" for generations, the club created its own following and began to attract eager students of all ages.
The years would see many new faces, both male and female, walk through its doors. Years later, many of those students are still training at the club and encouraging new members to take interest. Coaches Greg and Daniel Martin have since become honourary members of Membertou's community. They have helped shape champions and make dramatically positive impacts in the lives of their students.
In 2015, the club adopted the Mi'kmaw phrase Ta'n Wen'ju'te'kewinu'k Etl-kina'masulti'tij as the name of its training area. Translated, it means Where Warriors Train.
Today, Membertou Boxing Club is situated at its permanent home, overlooking the community’s traditional pow wow grounds and athletics field, while sharing a communal space with Membertou’s Elders and band staff.
