November 2019 News
NOV 8-10: The Canadian Muay Thai Nationals took place with 1 lone competitor from New Era. Taylor McClatchie (with a broken hand) captured her 3rd straight national title with a decision victory against her lone competitor. There is not much else to say except, WOW!
NOV 15: Our 3rd edition of Live at Lansdowne was a smashing success. New Era athletes once again performed above and beyond expectations, and it was one heck of a party on Bank St. Thank you for showing your support once again!
NOV 8-10: The Muay Thai Nationals take place at the Markham Pan Am Centre from Nov 8-10. Taylor McClatchie is among notable names looking to take home gold and is also New Era’s lone competitor! Go Taylor!
NOVEMBER: A couple of BJJ tournaments took place this past month, including NextGen and 2 SAU tournaments. New Era won 3rd place in the “best team” portion of NextGen’s tournament, with many of the competitors being 1st timers. Highlighting the day was purple belt Ian Stefanison who captured gold in ALL 3 of his divisions. We also had both Professor Peter and Matt McKay capturing gold at SAU Hawkesbury in their black & brown belt divisions. This is just one of the reasons why our instructors are the best. Congratulations to all who competed in November, and we will see you all next on January 25 @ Lansdowne Park.

“Be patient. Getting good at BJJ takes time. Nobody becomes an expert overnight. Focus on your skills and not on belt promotions.”
