On October 6, 2016, the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Peterborough and District Wapiti Métis Council (PDWMC) visited the Battle Arts Academy in Mississauga—a state of the art human performance facility. The facility is owned by Anthony Carelli, MNO citizen and former WWE Wrestler who is also known as Super Star Santino Marella.

The facility is committed to the healthy development of athletes and offers pro wrestling and various fitness services, such as cardio kickboxing, lead and fit camps, kettlebells and boxing, Muay Thai and more!

Carelli gave the MNO PDWMC a personal tour of the facility where they were able to watch several athletes training. At the end of the tour, the MNO PDWMC presented Carelli with a Métis sash and flag. He said he will proudly display the Métis flag in his facility for everyone to see. The MNO PDWMC would like to thank Carelli for hosting them on this special visit!
