Our humble beginnings started in August 2014 in Base Borden where coach Bao was working as part of the Canadian Armed Forces. Because of complications, Bao decided to move his club of 2 members to Barrie, where he rented some mat space from a Tae Kwon Do gym in order to continue teaching classes.
With the encouragement of members and the help of some dedicated teammates (2 of which are now instructors), slowly yet surely, business began to flourish. Legacy Fight Club finally decided in the late summer of 2015 to migrate to their very own permanent location. Since then, Legacy Fight Club enabled Bao to retire from the Canadian Forces and work as a dedicated full time coach.
What's your Legacy?
A bad breakup that led to an awesome new relationship
I, Bao, started Legacy Fight Club for my own selfish reasons. I have been craving to compete after taking some time off for nearly 4 years prior to the opening of Legacy, but distractions kept derailing me from this goal. There were very little options for training Muay Thai in Barrie so I decided in the late summer of 2014 to open a fight club, with the far-fetched hopes that I can find people to train with so I can once again return to the ring. I fell in love with instructing classes, getting to know the members, training the fighters for their bouts, and creating a passion project which now happens to be my full-time job.
