Sensei Nic Savage is a trainer and teaching aid, who works alongside Sensei Matthew Lozinsky. He is a 1st Degree Black Belt (Shodan) in Ninjutsu. Nic began training in martial arts at the age of 15. He has studied a large variety of martial arts, some of these include Boxing, Drunken, Mixed Martial Arts, Arnis, and Historical European Martial Arts.
Outside of combatives, Nic is an avid free runner. What keeps him coming back to martial arts, to branch out and learn more, is the individuals in the martial arts community. Training at Rising Phoenix and other gyms around Alberta has forged everlasting friendships. It is this value that Nic strives to instill in any and all students he trains. For Nic, martial arts is much more than just a sport or hobby, it is a lifestyle.
