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.

2023.04.03 Cem Senol gave a great guest training at Baas Sports.
Cem Senol has more than 25 years’ experience in full-contact Karate/ Kyokushin, Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts, and won many national and international titles.
In 2020, he achieved a top performance by completing the 100-man kumite. He fought on 1 day against no less than 100 men, who followed each other. Full Contact with bare fists and no protection on the shins and feet.
History was made because this was the first time that the 100-man kumite was held in the Netherlands.
It wasn’t gentle and there are only 30 people worldwide who have completed this ultimate test. Cem Senol can now join these kumite legends.
The kumite was organized for Stichting Hartekind, to which all proceeds went. It was very tough but the seasoned experienced Senol fought through it. The last man he fought was his former trainer and legend Kancho Gerard Gordeau, who fought the very first UFC fight in 1993 and won in 26 seconds by TKO.
In 2013 Cem started Osaka dojo (https://dojo-osaka.com/), because in addition to being a very experienced fighter, he is also very experienced in the field of teaching.
