Summary 2001 and before.
Before Edwin Baas moved to Curacao in August 2001, he was active as trainer and coach in The Netherlands.
Edwin Baas is very grateful to his trainers Dick Smolders from Wadokan Haarlem and Marc van Keulen from Taekyon Haarlem. Next to the achievements of Baas in the world of martial arts, they gave him the opportunity to teach at their schools and also to start his own team.
Dick Smolders made Edwin's participation at the Muay Thai instructors course possible. After Baas received the instructor’s degree he started to teach Muay Thai and kickboxing @ Wadokan Haarlem. Because of the great success in relation to the small dojo, Baas started his own Thai-kickboxing and Taekwondo Club Haarlem. The location was the sports facility of the Martin Luther King School, that was handed over to Baas by Marc van Keulen.
In those early days we didn't have digital cameras, no smartphones, no internet, no social media, etc. For these reasons there are very few pictures, video recordings and information of that time. Also, many photos, videos and reports are lost because of several reasons. Therefore just a few of the many important events are published here.
