Dear Members,

We are exceedingly happy that WE CAN CONFIRM we’re returning to our old spot, 1055 Dunsmuir Street!!!

The BCAC has closed, and is now the YWCA. We will be operating out of their facility, and they have been accommodating and supportive of Contenders throughout our negotiations. We look forward to being in their newly renovated facility, and nurturing a fruitful relationship between the two businesses.

Most importantly, of course, we are incapable of fully expressing our gratitude to all of you for being so understanding and supportive.

Moving is hard enough. Unexpected floods are hard enough, never mind both at once! Adjusting to a new location isn’t always a jaunt in the park either. Neither is complete uncertainty about our future. However, seeing all of you every day, teaching boxing, and maintaining some semblance of normal has meant everything.  We always knew that you’re the reason we do this, but the past few months have shown us that in a whole new light.

We’ll be back by May, and there will be updates regarding the exact dates (and our plans for a grand re-opening!) We’ll of course keep you in the loop.

Thanks again for sticking with us during such a complicated and exhausting time! Your loyalty won’t be forgotten.

Have a lovely rest of your day, and we’ll see you soon.


Kevin, Richard, Yo, Seb, Indu, and Nikko.
