Sifu Nic Langman

Sifu Nic Langman's journey began in the fall of 2002 at 20 years old and struggling with personal challenges and chronic health problems.  He and a close friend decided to try shorin-ryu karate and he immediately fell in love with it.  “All I wanted to do was train.” remembers Sifu Nic. 

After spending many years studying under Master Gill Gauthier, Nic was introduced to Maudian “Super Mario” Serbinek, who's Muay Thai influenced style of kickboxing brought his level of training and skill set to the next level.  Along the way, Sifu Nic also studied Tai Chi under Master Ian Sinclair, who also teaches out of Orillia.  Master Ian's Shuai Jiao (Chinese wrestling) training and Tai Chi principles were a big help in securing victories at both the Provincial and National levels of full contact San-da.

Sifu Nic Langman's passion for martial arts and combat sports is what propels him to get people involved in combat sports training for fitness, well being and peace of mind.

Nic's accomplishments so far include:

  • Intercontinental Competitor - Silver Medal, 2017 South Africa;

  • Bronze medal, Pan Am Games - Mexico, 2016;

  • World Amateur Sumo Champion, Thailand - 2015;

  • Canadian National Kickboxing Champion - 2015 & 2017;

  • 2x National San Da Champion;

  • OBBWC Kickboxing World Champion;

  • 1st Degree Black Belt, Japanese Karate;

  • Professional MMA Trainer and Licensed Corner;

  • Licensed Muay Thai Judge and Referee;

  • Assistant Coach, Team Canada, Thailand, 2015.

Jessica McCutcheon


Jessica is first and foremost a proud mom of 2 little Ninjas!  She is the co-owner of Black Lotus Kickboxing and is always grateful when she gets the opportunity to step away from the computer to instruct one of the classes or the opportunity to coach athletes at a kickboxing event. 

She enjoys teaching all levels of Children, Women and Co-Ed kickboxing classes and is always eager to show the community how amazing Black Lotus is at events!

Jessica is one of the highest ranking members at the Dojo and has been a competitive member both locally and intercontinentally.  She has been training consistently under Sifu Nic for 3 years with no intentions on stopping!

Kickboxing and Martial Arts instantly became an obsession for her, after 30 years with no athletic experience.  Jessica has continued training, with 2 very young kids in tow, despite many of life's challenges.  She takes a very strong "no excuses" stance and believes that your body and mind must be a priority!  She believes in nourishing the body with amazing food and creating a strong mind through Martial Arts, Mindfulness and Laughter!
