Featured Coach - MovNat

Cedric “Vic” Verdier, aka “Man In Black,” is one of those larger-than-life characters, determined to live life to the fullest. He has been a sport enthusiast since his early age and an active instructor since more than 25 years. He first taught physical training and other military-related activities as an officer in the French Commandos. He also spend two decades teaching scuba diving at the highest level, becoming one of the deepest explorers on the planet and exploring virgin wrecks and deep caves, thanks to state-of-the art equipment (mixed-gas diving, rebreathers, etc).


Cedric is a self-defense Instructor, a swimming coach and an experienced strength and conditioning coach who has taught courses and conducted seminars virtually all over the world. He is also the author of more than 200 sport-related articles in various magazines and eight published books in English and French.


In 2010, coming back to his French roots, Vic joined his friend Erwan Le Corre and the MovNat team to share his passion for a simpler, more efficient, and no-nonsense physical and mental training and lifestyle. He is a MovNat Master Instructor and instructs MovNat certification workshops, MovNat retreats, and MovNat specialty workshops (combatives and aquatics).
