Summary 2018

Kickboxing World Champion and Boxing Champion Wendell Roche was January 2018 in Curacao and gave training at Baas Sports and Parasasa beach.
Wendell Roche, born in Curacao (1970), started with boxing and became Dutch champion in three different weight-classes. After 18 years boxing he made the switch to Muay Thai and kickboxing and became world champion. Wendell fought more than 300 fights world-wide, to mention some countries; England, Poland, Thailand, Spain, Czech Republic, Belgium, Romania, Macedonia, France, Greece, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia, The Netherlands. Some of the opponents were Errol Zimmerman, Gökhan Saki, Stefan Leko, etc. Wendell holds an amazing achievement in being the only man to ever defeat the kickboxing great Ginty Vrede. In 2013 Wendell won in Tenerife (Spain) the Enfusion world title -90 kg.
Wendell trained 3 years with Peter Aerts and was sparring-partner of Remy Bonjasky, Thiago Silva in Miami and Mirco Crocop in Croatia.
As trainer he was also international active. Wendell lives in Beirut (Lebanon) and is trainer of the Lebanese national team.
Wendell is still active in competitions. May 25 2018 he won Igor Kolacin by TKO (Technical Knock-Out) in a K-1 rules kickboxing fight at the PGE National Stadium in Warsaw Poland.


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), Eli van Nierop (16) and Ginuwine Kwidama (17), dominated at the practice kickboxing bouts.

That extra Mental Strength to succeed. For years no-one made the 10 times in 1 minute the well-known "left-right kore bai bin" exercise of Baas Sports Curacao. May 31 Ginuwine Kwidama did it, he did it for his father that died as a Hero 6 years ago. Ginuwine's father, Ramsis Kwidama, gave his life to rescue a young kid (12) from drowning in the "Nieuwe Maas" (Rotterdam). Ramsis Kwidama, a Hero from Curacao.


My Abi Murat Ilgen came to Curacao again and also trained at Baas Sports. Since 1991 is Murat my training-partner, schoolmate, colleague, brother, etc. We traveled the whole world for competitions and vacation. Murat also represented Baas Gym Haarlem in the Thai-boxing ring with success.

May 12, 2018 CuraBox (Curacao Boxing Association) presented "Roll wit the punches" with the participation of Aruba, Bonaire, Sint Maarten/ Saint Martin and various Curacao teams.
Jaydon Dania (13) did a great job during his ring debut. His opponent was not only three years older but also proved to be a real talent. Ronin Prince, son of a kickboxing trainer was also Dutch karate champion. Two judges had him as winner and 3 his opponent.
Ginuwine Kwidama was the other boxer from Baas Sports and won by unanimous decision, according all 5 judges.


May 22nd workshop 'Safety' for ambulance and CITRO (citizen rescue organization) staff by Ries van Lomwel, Nouche Fleming Nicolaas and Edwin Baas was great and needs a follow-up.

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.
Denise Kielholtz Gerges masha masha danki for the great training where there was a good balance between technique and conditional exercises.
Denise C Kielholtz Gerges is not only a great champion in the ring and the cage, also outside the ring and the cage she is a great, very spontaneous, sympathetic and beautiful young lady with her heart in the right place. The proceeds of this seminar she donated to the Team FightAble of Fundashon Verriet De SGR-Groep, a group of people with disabilities, who show that they also have a lot of abilities and are able to practice boxing and martial arts in an appropriate way.

Both boxers from Baas Sports Curacao won their bouts September 8 2018.
Ginuwine Kwidama won Aruba and Grego Scharbaai won Sint Maarten

At the 2nd edition of the Honor Fight League, October 6 2018, Grego Scharbaai from Baas Sports Curacao won his international Thai Boxing fight, his first B-class (semi-pro), after 5 rounds by an unanimous decision.
After a cancellation there was unfortunately no opponent for Ginuwine Kwidama.

Some of the international fighters at HFL, like; Team USA, Team Suriname, winners of the best KO MMA fighter Akeem Lewis (Sint Maarten), A-Class fighters of the Main event Mayson Maciel (Brazil) and Dimangio Jano (The Netherlands) who won the prize as best fighter of the event.

Wat Marius van Noort allemaal voor elkaar gebokst heeft, zowel letterlijk als figuurlijk, is bewonderenswaardig.
To step into the ring and compete you need guts and therefor you're already a winner. And doing this at the age of 46 for good causes. For charities in both Curacao and the Netherlands, he was the absolute winner.
