Kick is a family Martial Arts school aiming to serve the Coral Gables community with quality, fun and valuable lessons. We give our all to our students. With limited class sizes our students receive detailed instruction and our convenient schedule makes it easy. We are a traditional Tae Kwon Do and Self Defense Dojang also focusing on the development of ones mind through setting goals, spirit through character, and body by elevating physical fitness. The Martial Arts has so much to offer, it's not just a hobby, it's a life sport/practice/art. We can't wait to show you or your child their greatest potential.
Master Derek Pascul
Born and raised here in Coral Gables, Master Derek began practicing at age 10 under Grandmaster Diego Perez and started learning to teach at age 15. As a child with learning disabilities, Martial Arts provided the discipline, clarity, and patience needed to achieve in life. It became his life goal to help others in the same way and has been doing so ever since. After furthering his knowledge and skillset under Grandmaster Sang Koo Kang and managing instruction out of 3 of his schools simultaneously, Master Derek opened Kick at age 24 on the same street he grew up. Having a Dojang with positive energy where students can learn, smile, and grow is the objective. Continuing to offer lessons and train every day right here with you is his greatest honor and privilege.
