• Sherman, who owns a shop on 2nd Cross Street between Heeren and Jonker, started practicing martial arts at the Malacca Ching Wu Athletic Association when he was seventeen. The school had these great set routine posters on the walls, but they were falling apart, so Sherman took it upon himself to make new ones. They turned out so well that he decided to sell some of them at his store, where you can also find hand-painted maps and antiques.
