The Circle of Discipline, Inc. is a 501(C)(3) with almost 25 years of experience training community members in boxing technique and martial arts, in addition we have an extensive rapport of coaching award winning boxers in both amateur and professional arenas by some of the best in town.
Alongside our long history of success in boxing, our main goal has always been to better our community in any way that we can–and we’ve been doing it well! We have and continue to host a range of wellness classes including: physical fitness, yoga, martial arts training, family outdoor adventures (i.e. camping and fishing trips) and environmental education. Recently, we’ve also implemented financial workshops open to our community members. We also have in-school programs to lower the rate of suspensions, and we have accomplished a 90% success rate in kids not being suspended again within these programs. We are successful because we teach life lessons in ways that you cannot learn in school — that reach youth who have been deemed “unreachable.”
As part of our work, Circle of Discipline has been using a facility in the Cloquet, MN area as a space to provide intense training for boxers, host outdoor adventures and educate families about environmental responsibility. A facility in which, is also used for after-school programming. We have an opportunity buy the facility at a very low price — $60,000. We have already received a pledge of $30,000 — we’re halfway to accomplishing our goal!
Supporting the Circle of Discipline means supporting youth and families that don’t have access to many resources — both in Minneapolis and in the Cloquet area. Supporting COD means that youth can continue to have a safe place to connect and learn after-school. Anything that you can donate is greatly appreciated — we thank you in advance for your contribution.
