Before Edwin Baas moved to Curacao in 2001, he was active as trainer/coach in The Netherlands. More about this period in The Netherlands click here.
Augustus 2001 Edwin Baas immigrated with his wife (Palmira) and daughter (Afra) to Curaçao. His son (Raekwon) was born in 2002 in Curacao.
In Curaçao Baas started to teach and train a small team, but with big results. His competition fighters including; boxers, Thai kick-boxers and MMA fighters, were (and still are) very successful in local and international competitions.

Besides teaching Baas also started to organize various activities.
With former world karate champion Dudley Josepa and others, he founded in 2003 CUMAFE (Curacao Martial Arts Federation) and with CUMAFE Baas organized activities such as; international fight events, competitions, championships, Training Camps, beach trainings, projects for charities (donate blood, painting schools, etc.), lectures (about discipline, behavior, respect and the dangers of drugs and alcohol) and of course fight and martial arts events. CUMAFE organized various editions of "The Night of the Martial Arts", with competitions and / or exhibitions in Karate, Taekwondo, Judo, Aikido, Capoeira, Kung Fu / Wu Shu, Muay Thai kickboxing, MMA, Jiu Jitsu, Krav Maga , Boxing, etc.
Meanwhile Edwin Baas also became president of the Curacao Boxing Association in 2009 and invoked new life in boxing in Curacao.
Edwin Baas has good international contacts and frequently international top fighters, champions and high level trainers visit Curacao to train and/or teach.
“It is difficult to mention names because there are so many great persons who came by. Two of them, two living legends I have to mention and that are Fedor Emilianenko and Royce Gracie. It was a great honor to have these legendary guests.
It was also a honor to receive from the hands of Royce Gracie an award "A recognition and appreciation for devotion and commitment". This happened in 2013 during the Curacao Sport and Nutrition Fair, where Jemyma Betrian and Royce Gracie were invited to give seminars.

"There are no effective or useless fighting styles but only people who practice their combat method in an effective or less effective way. Purely an individual matter.
When it comes to self-defense, fighting over the name is completely irrelevant, because fighting is and remains what it is and that is fighting. Nothing more and nothing less. A name is just a name.
The effectiveness depends on the practitioner. No system will give you magical powers. As a practitioner, you have to shape it yourself.
If you're talking about combat sports than it’s a different story. A sport is mend for competition or recreation. A sport has its own specific rules". Still in a sport like MMA you can not say this sport/style is more effective than that sport/style, because it depends on the qualities of those specific athletes and not their style or sport."
