"Darren is one of my top students and instructors. I feel strongly about his expertise and skill in Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) and he has been certified to instruct in the FMA styles of Burokil Alambra Arnis De Mano and Tungkong Bato. Through his rigorous training and continued self-study, he has developed into one of the strongest Buno practitioners I have met. Darren is a highly skilled instructor in both FMA and street self-defense"

Darren has been a student of mine for a number of years. Darren successfully completed the whole form of T'ai-Chi Yang Style. He was always on time & happy about learning. Very diligent. Very enthusiastic. I would recommend anyone that wants to be a student of Darren's will be very fulfilled & happy in his teachings.
Darren also successfully practised & learned different forms of Chi Kung exercises and practiced them regularly. He practiced the Chi Kung 21 for a very long time, amongst many other Chi- Kung Forms.
It has been a pleasure meeting & knowing Darren as a student, which led to a friendship.
