Edwin Baas loves to teach aggression management, especially to great students like these from Stichting IFE Curaçao.

February 9 Edwin Baas gave Martial Arts training to nine groups/classes of the Divi divi school. Marcel Piepenbrink gave lessons in judo to the same students.

In the carnival period (February) we had a special guest training at Baas Sports Curacao. A-class Muay Thai kickboxer Shanice Jos efina from Mejiro Gym Amsterdam. Shanice trained before at Baas Sports when she was in Curacao and she also took part at the reunion training that Edwin Baas gave in Haarlem 2013 @ MT gym.
Despite celebrating carnival, she also had to prepare for a fight in Portugal against Micaela Varela. Shanice won this fight March 10 2018.

It was very nice to have Justin Do Rego back at our training (see bigger pic in the center). Justin is one of the many young people that left Curacao few years ago to continue study in The Netherlands. Justin started to train at Baas Sports Curacao, when he was a little kid and developed both physically and mentally, from little boy to young man. Main reason for Justin to visit Curacao was celebrating the birthday of his mother.

Another special guest at Baas Sports was Clarence Thompson with his ladies (his partner Denifa and his lovely little daughter). Clarence is a former pro fighter in MMA and Muay Thai kickboxing and represented Pro-Fighters/ Mandingo Gym/ Team Slamm. After his fighting career he became trainer of MAS (Martial Arts Society) in Amsterdam South-East. In the other photos some other great memories with Clarence who is also a great person in general.

March 24 2018 3 youngsters from Baas Sports, Jaydon Dania (13 years), Eli van Nierop (16 years) and Ginuwine Kwidama (17 years), dominated at the training fights Thai boxing. Different teams participated at this great day of sportsmanship.

Monday June 11 2018 the Martial Kids of Baas Sports Curacao did exam.

The Martial Kids concept of Baas Sports is specific sports education for youth. Edwin Baas combines his experience with several martial arts and fighting systems with the knowledge from the sport training science, healthcare and physiotherapy.

The lessons and exams contains safety tips, self defense release techniques, techniques of Thai-kickboxing and other fighting systems, but also tests / exercises for the response, static balance, dynamic balance and other physical aspects. Besides the physical aspects, attention is paid to self-confidence, discipline and respect. Because children learn self defense techniques to defend them effectively.

Maandag 11 juni 2018 deden de “Martial Kids” van Baas Sports Curacao examen.
Het concept Martial Kids van Baas Sports is specifiek sportonderwijs voor de jeugd, waarbij Edwin Baas zijn ervaring met meerdere vechtsporten en zelfverdedigingsystemen combineert met de kennis uit de trainingsleer, sportgezondheidszorg en fysiotherapie. Edwin Baas is onder meer gediplomeerd sportleraar, fysiotherapeut, Muay Thai kickboxing trainer/coach, KAPAP instructeur en dangraadhouder (zwarte band) in zowel Karate als Taekwondo.
De lessen en examens behandelen veiligheidstips, bevrijdingstechnieken (als men bijvoorbeeld bij de keel of het haar gepakt wordt), technieken uit het Thai-kickboxing en andere vechtsystemen, maar ook uit testen/oefeningen voor de reactie, statische balans, dynamische balans en andere fysieke/motorische aspecten.
Naast de fysieke/ lichamelijke eigenschappen wordt er aandacht besteed aan o.a. weerbaarheid, zelfvertrouwen, discipline en respect.
Door zelfverdedigingtechnieken leren kinderen zich effectief te verdedigen. Hierdoor wordt hun zelfvertrouwen groter, voelen de kinderen zich veiliger en durven voor zich zelf op te komen.
Binnen deze groep staat ook het spelelement centraal en wordt door middel van competitie-elementen aangeleerd om op een goede manier met verlies en winst om te gaan.
Felicitaties voor de geslaagden.

Despite the holiday period, graduation ceremonies, many other activities and many cancellations for various reasons, fortunately there was a big attendance during the special seminar given by current Bellator Kickboxing world champion and 6-time world champion Miss Dynamite Denise Kielholtz.
