AT WORK: Kung fu artist's path to fitness

When he was 9 years old, Derrick Wright saw his first kung fu movie. He was "amazed and in awe." After the movie, "I was kicking and punching in the backyard and had a lot of imaginary adversaries." Wright went on to study Japanese karate and then kung fu, achieving the level of black belt while stationed as a Marine in Okinawa, Japan.

I was in the USAF stationed in Texas. There was the cat from San Francisco who told everyone how bad he was and was a Kung Fu wizard or something. Got crappy with me one day, went into his stance and dropped like a sand bag when I punched him out. I believe he got all his instruction from watching movies and that weird Kung Fu Master on TV that always beat-up heavily armed cowboys.
