Celine Nguyen

The member of the month for October is Celine Nguyen! Celine brings a very positive, motivating, and calm presence to those around her! Not only does Celine rarely miss a day of KinetiX training, but she has also rarely missed a day of BJJ training! She began training BJJ under Peter and team in May/June of this year, and hasn’t looked back! Already with 2 stripes on her white belt, Celine has been a fantastic role model to other ladies around the gym, which in turn has helped jumpstart our Women’s BJJ program. If you are around New Era often, you will be sure to see Celine training hard with a smile on her face! A massive shoutout also goes out to the other Nguyens as well; Panda Dave & Michael!

“We don’t just coach sports; we coach people, choices, consequences, respect, and life.”


“In BJJ, what you get out of it exactly how much you put into it. One training session per week is a “maintenance” amount. You must aim for at least 3 sessions per week if you are serious about your development.”
