Van Monck Autonomous Gym

Van Monck Autonomous Gym

Short url:

The Van Monck Autonomous Gym is the first autonomous gym in Ghent. It is a place where anarchists / activists can work to form, both physically and mentally, a strong group who’s able to defend itself.
The gym is a small room with boxing equipment and gym mats. It is an autonomous place, no membership fee, but voluntary contribution. Without leaders, but with shared responsibility. This shared responsibility means that the gym is ran by volunteers, and that everyone has their part to contribute to this. Everyone training regularly, has a say on how the club is being runned.
There are Kickboxing / Muay Thai and English boxing classes in a casual and open atmosphere. Your commitment and enthusiasm during training are more important than your physical condition. You don’t need to stress about bringing own equipment the first time you come over. As you will see on the pictures page we have plenty of equipment available for use.
Please keep in mind that we are not responsible for possible accidents or injuries.
Macho behaviour, sexism, homophobia, racism and other right-wing ideas will not be tolerated.

All classes are for free donation, you pay what you can.
