OCKMMA Seminar Series – Professor Nicolas Saignac
OCKMMA Seminar Series Continues
In the words of Coach Alex, “Come learn the art of French whoop-ass with Professor Nic!” And “Professor Nic” is, of course, none other than Professor Nicolas Saignac – the highest-ranking Savate Silver Glove in the United States!
Boxe Francaise Savate is an exciting ring sport and is known for its fluidity, mobility and rapid-fire combinations. It is a blend of French Kickboxing and Old English Boxing developed in the 19th century on sailing ships and in the back-alleys of France.
Professor Nicolas is a former, French Savate champion and has dedicated the last twenty-five years of his life to teaching this exciting sport to students of all levels. He began his study of Savate in 1983. After just a few years under the tutelage and guidance of Franco DiGuglielmo (one of France’s best coaches), Professor Saignac reached the final of the French Cup in 1987 and won the title the following year.
After competing for six years in Savate as well as in Boxing, Professor Saignac retired from the ring to focus on teaching, coaching, judging and refereeing. Professor and holding teaching credentials from the Ministry of Sports in Savate and Boxing, Nicolas Saignac also holds a Silver Glove 2nd degree, the highest Savate rank in the United States.
Since moving to Los Angeles, California in 1992, Professor Saignac has become one of the leading promoters of the sport, teaching, leading, training or coaching successful US teams to several World Savate Championships. He has had the honor to teach Savate Kickboxing with a strong emphasis on ring tactics at the internationally famous Inosanto Academy for several years, working with renowned martial artists such as Erik Paulson and Ron Balicki.
Over the years, Nicolas Saignac has authored instructional videos, and several articles in Martial arts magazines. Professor Nicolas is world renowned for his skill; his athleticism; and his amazing coaching skills! You won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind seminar with one of the world’s foremost Savate masters.
