Sept/Oct Martial Arts Updates & the Magic 100 tmrw


No matter where you live, or what age you are…knowing WHAT to do, and HOW to get away safe from a bully or attacker is a critical skill.

Join us for these introductory classes in Septembert to get a solid and simple game plan to GET AWAY SAFE.

If you have young kids, school is here, and THIS is the way to get them the confidence they hopefully will never need to use against a bully.  

Bullying can have lifelong consequences – help them be prepared.

Melissa Reaume – New Muay Thai Coach

Please join in welcoming the newest addition to our coaching team – the awesome Melissa Reaume.

Always an active kid growing up, Melissa accidentally found Muay Thai in 2005 and fell instantly in love with it.

She began teaching about a year later and in 2007 stepped into the ring for the first time.

Over the next 7 years Melissa racked up 25 amateur fights all over the world.

In April 2014 she fulfilled a dream she’d had since she started training; she headed to Thailand to train full time and start her professional fighting career. While in Thailand, Melissa fought much more experienced opponents (sometimes with 100+ fights) and became the first Canadian to fight on World Muay Thai Angels – the largest professional all female Muay Thai promotion in the world.

After returning to Canada in June 2015 Melissa plans to continue to fight while passing on the knowledge gained from her experiences to others, guiding them on their own journeys and helping them not just reach, but surpass any and all goals they have set out for themselves.

For a full list of fights and links to videos check out Melissa’s fight profile here:
