Hear what everyday people and families have to say about our school, coaches, and program!

Nidhi / Allied Educator

It's been a fantastic journey with Coach Caryl for the past 2 years. She is very dedicated and focused in her work coaching young kids.
Her classes are special and interesting; and my daughter finds her innovative teaching methods very refreshing and enjoyable. My gratitude to Coach Caryl  for all you have done to shape my child’s Muay Thai skills which reflects in her personal growth and development!

Nicole / Teacher

Very helpful and kind coaches who cater to individual needs. Very experienced and always learning and refining my skills in all their classes. They also have a wide range of classes for different interests and skill levels so it is great to see a varied schedule that i can set aside my time to train for!

Ananya / Student

Went there for 2 trial classes and they were super fun! Learnt a lot just in 2 sessions and I'm looking forward to joining the school long-term :)

Danial / Pro-Wrestler

The moment I stepped into the New Era MMA/Combat Cubs School, I was instantly hooked! The trainers are super friendly and super patient in teaching the students there! 
I am training Grappling under Niko, and he is really chill and easy to learn from. He has pushed me hard and given me great advice to better my skills. Even though I did not participate in her class, Caryl seemed very patient in her teaching. I am so comfortable with the environment that I pushed my wife to join the Ladies Hour Muay Thai Program! 
It’s an easy 5 stars from me for the quality classes and affordable rates!/Combat Cubs School, I was instantly hooked! The trainers are super friendly and super patient in teaching the students there! 

Hana / Mother of 3

My boys have been training with Caryl and Bryan for a few years now. There are nothing but only good things to say about the coaches and programs at Cubs Combat School. 

My boys appreciate the classes at Cubs Combat School as the programs have been developed and customized for easy understanding. They enjoy a great workout with good vibes all around. Aside from the exercise regime, my boys are equipped with important values such as discipline, resilience, respect and kindness (some of the qualities they bargained with at home!)

These coaches are not only professional and friendly but are also always caring towards the boys' well-being. I salute the coaches' determination to put together programs such as Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai for our younger generation.

I first started out Muay Thai classes with New Era MMA back in mid-December 2022. Since it was a group class setting with my friends and other students who were pretty much more experienced than I was, I had fear of not being able to keep up with the pace of the class. However that wasn't true when the coaches demonstrated each component of the class slowly to me & highlighting the purpose and the ideal context settings of executing those moves in great detail. Though other students were already doing their practices & pair up moves with each other and I was still struggling to grasp the moves, the coaches will step in to correct my form & demonstrate the moves again with patience which is something I'm really grateful for which made my learning experience for each class enjoyable. I would definitely recommend New Era MMA if you are keen on picking up martial arts!

Coaches are fun and they pay attention to every single one of us. People training here are also fun and they don't mind teaching you,. The sparring is light and no ego whatsoever. 👍
Gym is clean, spacious and have complete equipment. I couldn't ask for more.

Melissa / Yoga Instructor

New Era MMA is a very welcoming and unpretentious martial arts gym with all the essential equipment and facilities. Head Coaches Niko and Caryl are highly skilled and attentive, garnered from years of teaching and competitive experience, with expert ability to help students reach their best potential in physical and technical prowess. I would highly recommend this gym to all levels of athletes from beginner to advance, especially those looking for a safe place to train with expert quality coaching and a friendly non-judgmental culture. There is a wide range of classes available from BJJ and Muay Thai to Boxing and MMA, personal training and kids classes are very popular among clients as well. They also have trial classes available for a taste of what the gym has to offer.

Andy / SPF Regular

Gym environment is clean. The coaches pay attention to detail of the people training so they get the technique right & every person get equal attention from the coach

Stijn / Father of 2

Brought my 4-year old boy for Jiu-Jitsu training. He loves it. Coach Caryl is great with the kids. It's great to see the growth in skill and confidence. 

Yanisa / Volunteer Secretary for Residents' Network

My son (age 4) enjoys coming to New Era MMA's Cubs Combat School, where Coach Caryl leads the way in their engaging kids' program. In just a few months, I've witnessed noticeable growth in my son's skills and confidence, &it's a good way to occupy him over the weekends. The diverse curriculum, including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, MMA, & boxing, not only introduces him to various martial arts disciplines but also enhances his overall coordination & motor skills.

With considerable experience in coaching both young children & ladies, Coach Caryl's approach, firm yet fair, creates a supportive learning environment where discipline & respect are instilled with kindness. This approach makes the classes at Cubs Combat School not only educational but also enjoyable for the young participants.

The gym facilities are nice and clean, with a waiting/chilling area for parents. There are also showers that you can use. Plenty of parking nearby & just 5 minutes away from the MRT station. No water dispenser though, but u can buy bottled water from them or bring your own. The staff & coaches are also very friendly, & will stop to chat when they have a minute, making us feel at home, another thing I appreciate. Support our young local entrepreneurs!

Jonathan / Lawyer

You would be hard-pressed to find a more respected collection of coaches who are at once at the top of their game & some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. NEW ERA MMA has cracked the code in delivering high calibre martial arts education in an accessible & thoroughly enjoyable way, while also attracting good, decent people as its students. A rare mix indeed. Coach Caryl is also a wonder to watch with kids in her passion project - the Cubs Combat School programme!
