About Me

Get to Know Derrick

With over 40 years experience studying, teaching and demonstrating the Martial Arts, plus over 20 years as a fitness instructor, and more than a decade as a published fitness writer, Derrick Nowlin has established himself nationally in the fitness and martial arts arenas. He is a sought after Martial Arts instructor, Fitness Coach and Writer as well as an often quoted subject matter expert in martial arts and fitness.

As a teenager, Derrick was almost abducted. That was a real eye-opening experience. He learned that you can’t just “know” some self-defense, you need to have reflexes and have the ability to execute what you know. But beyond that, you must be in the right condition to protect yourself. Training harder became a priority. Derrick has had the absolute pleasure of training under several Great Martial Arts Masters over the years, including 7 Time World Karate Champion and Creator of Tae Bo, Billy Blanks, The Legendary Guro Dan Inosanto and undefeated World Kickboxing Champion Pete “Sugarfoot” Cunningham, to name a few. Derrick was also the Creator and a member of the performance group Momentum.
