"Little" Derek has been practicing Chinese martial arts at the SYL Wushu Institute since 1992. Being an avid fan of Jet Li and Jackie Chan movies, he began taking Wushu classes and since then, has also been learning Sanshou, Xing Yi, and the Wuji Xiao Yao System.
For Derek, studying martial arts is an excellent way to keep fit and improve coordination. In addition, he believes that Chinese martial arts is able to train both the mind and the body. He hopes that Wushu will continue to spread worldwide and have a positive impact on the lives of those that learn to appreciate it.
