Edwin Baas of Baas Sport in Curaçao received the quality seal of the Dutch Boxing Association NBB (Nederlandse BoksBond) from director René Braad.
Baas Sport has been a household name on the island for many years. Various martial arts can be practiced in this gym, including boxing. Edwin is also the chairman of CuraBox. With this he connects the different boxing centers on the island and tries to get the boxers to box as often as possible.
In addition to his passion for top sport, he also makes this accessible for anyone who wants to practice boxing. Nothing is too much for him and if necessary he even sacrifices his vacation to transfer the boxing virus to the youth.
Baas Sport is also a branch for Dutch boxers who stay in Curaçao for a longer period of time for work or vacation and who want to continue practicing their favorite sport.
Edwin made the Boxing Instructors course possible and was the host for the conversation with the chairman of the Surinamese Boksbond Mr Remie Burke.

July & August 2022 we had Andry Westerhout and his family, wife Yvonne and two sons Xyando en Quanyi, again as guests at Baas Sports Curaçao.
Andry Westerhout started with taekwondo in Enkhuizen and soon turned out to have a talent for the sport. His trainer, the Curaçao native Millis Prens, who is very open minded with regard to the development of his students, brought Andry in 1993 to Taekyon Haarlem by Marc van Keulen. Top fighters from all over the country gathered to train together at Taekyon Haarlem and Marc produced many champions. Edwin Baas was also 1 of the A-class fighters.
Traveling several times a week from Enkhuizen to Haarlem turned out to be fruitful, because a year later Andry became Dutch Champion of the TBN (Taekwondo Bond Nederland) in the higher A-class segment for the first time. Many international achievements followed as a member of the Dutch team.
