Master Derek Pascul

Born and raised here in Coral Gables, Master Derek began practicing at age 10 under Grandmaster Diego Perez; becoming proficient in 2 styles of Taekwondo (Jhoon Rhee Taekwondo and ITF), Hapkido, Kali/Escrima, XMA, Traditional Japanese weaponry, he started learning to teach at the age of 15.  It quickly became his life goal to help others in the same way it did so for him. After furthering his knowledge and skillset under Grandmaster Sang Koo Kang expanding into WT (World Taekwondo), Muai Thai and Kickboxing as well as managing instruction out of 3 of his schools simultaneously, Master Derek opened Kick at age 24 on the same street he grew up. To this day continuing his Martial Arts training into the Tibetan combative art Tescao and continues to actively further his knowledge in real world self-defense for his students. Having a Dojang with positive energy where you 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.
