October 2018 News

October was definitely one of the busiest months we have had at New Era Combat Sports! I am sure most of you can tell based on class sizes and we couldn’t be happier! New faces, old familiar faces, and good vibes everyday! This has been an outstanding month for the New Era family so here is the rundown of it all!


OCT 20: The Ottawa BJJ Open was a fantastic event for Professor Peter’s pupils. Some medals, some smiles, and most importantly, lots of competitors! Win or lose, putting the work in at the gym and showing up to compete is what it is all about. 

OCT 20 & 21: Taylor McClatchie & Brandon Uguccioni represented New Era Combat Sports in Markham, Ontario at the 2018 Muay Thai Canadian Nationals. Taylor left a national champion (yet again) and Brandon competed in his 1st ever Muay Thai fight after just a few short months of training. Congratulations to both fighters who represented well, as well as Kru Jeff for being a great coach/corner as always.  

NOV 17: NextGen Jiu-Jitsu will be off the hook! With already 10+ competitors signed up and some of our elite young prospects, New Erawill be looking to take home gold! Talk to Professor Pete for more details and get signed up!

NOV 24: Live at Lansdowne. We will blow the roof off of the Aberdeen Pavilion and we hope you can all be there to help share in what will be a memorable evening. See you all there!

DEC 7: TKO 45 will be held at the famous Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec. Featured on this card will be our very own Mateo Vogel, Matar Lo, and Adam HunterMateo looks to keep his record perfect, picking up his 3rd consecutive victory inside the TKO octagon while Matar & Adam look to get back in the win column! Tickets will be for sale at New Era shortly.

Ashley Nichols: Glory 61

Ashley will be competing under New Era Combat Sports for the first time this Friday, November 2nd at 7:30pm in Glory 61. Making the trip to NYC with Ashley will be coach/teammates Yuki Yamanaka & fellow glory competitor, Rob Thomas. On the other side of the ring will be a seasoned veteran from Thailand who has compiled 91 wins in 109 bouts. Tune in on UFC Fight Pass to see what will be an action packed 3 rounds! We are all with you Ashley!

Rourke DeVries

Our member of the month for October is Rourke DeVries. Rourke recently won gold in his first BJJ competition with New Era at the Ottawa Open on October 20th. He has been working hard the past 3-4 months to get into prime competition shape training almost everyday (sometimes twice a day). Professor Pete has been working hard with all of his competitors but Rourke goes that extra mile. Look out for this guy to be a serious threat in the BJJ scene in the near future! Rourke has also started to train some Muay Thai and will soon be a very well-rounded and talented martial artist! Keep up the awesome work!
