Who We Are
Northside Boxing Club is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit boxing gym located on 33rd and James Avenue in Minneapolis. The gym opened in March 2016 as a safe place to teach fundamentals about life, character, nutrition, education, and boxing. Northside Boxing Club is much more than a boxing gym. We are a family.
What We Do
Every weekday evening we offer boxing classes, on-site tutoring, and a nutritious meal from the following restaurants: Bar La Grassa, Burch Steakhouse, 112 Eatery, and Barrio.
