JULY 6: New Era newcomer Abdullah looks to claim the victory in his first ever Muay Thai fight (all the way in Bermuda). Abdullah is a wrestling phenom and is going to be an MMA threat in the 125-pound division one day. Good luck Abdullah. Also that same day, Ray Tucker-Peel is competing in the Ontario Open (No-Gi) as New Era’s lone competitor. Good luck to both athletes!

We will be opening our doors in Kanata to all members and community members to check out what awesome things we have to offer.

MEMBER OF THE MONTH

Bryan Lomas

Bryan Lomas is the member of the month for June 2019! Bryan has been one of Professor Peter’s most helpful and dedicated students (even before New Era started). Bryan always works with new students, and is super supportive of the New Era team at competitions and on the mats. Bryan helps Peter out no matter what is asked of him, and does it enthusiastically and with a great attitude. Not only is he so supportive of the New Era team, but his BJJ game has progressed immensely under Pete’s watchful eye. Congrats Bryan and keep doing what you are doing!
