Hi! My name is Cipriana Neagu. I am 1st degree black belt and have been doing karate ever since I was4 years old. My dad, Sensei Nick, has been my instructor ever since I first started karate. I have attended many karate tournaments, such as US Open, Junior Olympics Championship, Rocky Mountain Championship, just to name a few, where I have won various titles.
Throughout the years of doing karate I then became an assistant instructor at Excel Martial Arts. I help teach the students of all ages as well as the adult martial arts classes. I absolutely love teaching as I get to give my knowledge to the next person who is interested in karate. From a very young age my dad sensei Nick has influenced me in the most positive way. And now I get to pass that along to the next generation of students we have at Excel Martial arts. Shotokan karate (the karate style we do) helps our students achieve many elements in the outside world. And I’m happy to say that Sensei Nick will always leave the best mark on your child as he did with me, his daughter.
Cipriana is attending college of southern Nevada in hopes to become an orthodontist. She graduated Las Vegas Academy of the Arts majoring in dance. Outside of karate she is a dancer/performer for the Henderson Silver Knights (hockey team) and has done various performances throughout her Las Vegas residency.
