Legacy Gym, located on Boracay Island in the Philippines. The gym is founded by Ole ‘IronFist’ Laursen, a former Muay Thai European champion, world champion and a respected MMA fighter who has fought all around the world. The gym is home to all of our trainers, fighters and other locals who are living there and keep the gym alive.
Our gym specializes in Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Filipino style Boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts. At the gym there's a program for the local kids where they can train for free to teach them discipline and respect through martial arts and keep them of the streets. The gym is located near the beach on a tropical island. People from all over the world travel to stay with us in our bamboo accommodation, and train with our capable instructors, they work out to get in shape, some seek to become fighters but most just come for the one of a kind experience with our Legacy Gym Family.
Last Christmas, the morning of 25th December, Boracay was hit directly by the typhoon Ursula. The typhoon destroyed a lot on the island and also tore apart our beloved gym. The kitchen and store was destroyed, accommodations was ripped open and Building was tilted and is not accessable. The keystone octagon dome and home of our trainers collapsed onto the octagon and half the mats blew away, The gym itself is still there, but the material and houses took a hard hit as it was either soaked or blown away and we are struggling to get it back up.
Therefore, we are asking all of our friends, family, fighters and fans to help us through donations. This support will help to get the gym back up running and start to build a good strong structure, so that the gym will survive future storms and our Legacy will live on.
We appreciate all help, big or small it all helps
