SCNY student and coach Josh Lurton will be moving back out west in June and he will be sorely missed here at SCNY! All SCNY students are invited to participate in a last group BJJ class on Wednesday May 29 at 7pm. We will all train alongside with Josh and get the opportunity to thank him for teaching the BJJ fundamentals class on Tuesdays.

Adult classes will continue as normal on Saturday, May 25. The last class will be at 11:00 AM for BJJ. We will be closed on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day.

During the first week of June, the next testing cycle will commence for our youth martial arts students once again! Please see the front desk for any questions that you may have regarding youth testing eligibility.
Also in June, we are pleased to announce a seminar workshop with international pro Muay Thai athlete Ognjen Topic. The seminar will take place Saturday, June 15 from 12pm-3pm at SCNY Training Center. This is a special seminar because Ognjen is considered a local fighter in the Muay Thai community before he was recognized as an international fighter. The event will be sponsored by Punch Gunk and they will provide free samples to all participants. It is highly recommended that everyone who trains in Muay Thai attend this event. He is ranked No. 1 in the USA and has titles with the WBC, WKA, IKF to name a few. He is currently signed to ONE Championship. Square Circle New York is located at 80 Nassau Street (between Fulton St. and John St.) in the lower level. Our door entrance is next to the UPS store. Our signs are above and directly on our entrance door. Call us at 212-964-9800 for more information. We are located in FiDi in the heart of lower Manhattan where every major train stops!
Looking towards July, the next Warriors Cup 39 will be in Yonkers and the date is set for July 13. Matchmaking is underway for this event.
