Kickboxing and Boxing Champion Wendell Roche was January 2018 in Curacao and gave training at Baas Sports and Parasasa beach.
Wendell, born in Curacao (1970), fought more than 300 fights world-wide, and is still active. May 25 2018 (a few months after he was in Curacao) he won Igor Kolacin by TKO at the PGE National Stadium in Warsaw Poland (see at the left-above in the compilation below).
Jaydon Dania (13), Eli van Nierop (16) and Ginuwine Kwidama (17), dominated in kickbox (20180324). Ginuwine Kwidama with his trainer Baas @ King’s day (20180427). Training @ Parasasa beach.

Baas gave training to Divi divi school (20180209) and @ Marnix College Rio Canario (20180528).
Current Bellator and 6-time world champion Miss Dynamite Denise Kielholtz Gerges showed that she’s not only a great champion in the ring and the cage, but also outside the ring and the cage, She has her heart in the right place and the proceeds of the seminar she donated to the Team FightAble, a group of people with disabilities, but the abilities to practice boxing and martial arts in an appropriate way.
Both boxers from Baas Sports Curacao won their bouts. Ginuwine Kwidama won Aruba and Grego Scharbaai won Sint Maarten (20180908).
At the 2nd edition of the Honor Fight League Grego Scharbaai (Baas Sports Curacao) won his international B-class (semi-pro) ThaiBoxing fight after 5 rounds by unanimous decision (20181006).
To step into the ring and compete you need guts and therefor you’re already a winner. Marius van Noort did this at the age of 46 for charities in both Curacao and the Netherlands, he was the absolute winner. Because there are so many children who have to fight every day, Marius fought for them – and raised Ang. 25.000, – for the foundation against child abuse and handed over the check to governor Ms. Lucille George-Wout, patroness of Stichting Kinderbescherming Curacao.

Special guest trainer and former world champion Thai boxing, Soumia Abalhaja, gave some great classes Monday February 8 at Baas Sports Curacao.
The members of Baas Sports, both young and old, were very satisfied.
Edwin Baas: “Because of my international contacts, we often receive champions and top trainers who train and / or provide guest lessons at Baas Sports. This way you offer the members something extra that they greatly appreciate. The guests also love to do. Soumia’s passion for the sport was also clearly visible in the way she taught classes and she also enjoyed doing it very much. I do not always approach the press when there is a guest trainer, but without compromising the others, I now approach the press because Soumia has several talents.”
Soumia became Dutch champion, Benelux champion, world champion of the WPKL (World Professional Kickboxing League), world champion of the WFCA (World Full Contact Association) and World Champion Muay Thai League, a tournament with 8 champions). Besides being a fighter Soumia is also known as a presenter, actress and singer.

Edwin Baas: “As known, because of my international contacts we frequently receive champions and top trainers who train and / or provide guest lessons at Baas Sports. This time it was again a great success.
Nourdin is also a great person and does a lot from the heart. To give just a few examples; in Rotterdam he works with young people with psychosocial problems, he did a wheelchair boxing match with an English wheelchair user, for a boy with Down syndrome he made the day of his life by fighting an exhibition match with him.”
