B4 5999

Before Edwin Baas came to 5999 (Curaçao) in August 2001, he was teaching in The Netherlands.

In the photos below. Baas receiving the teacher/instructor’s degree of the Muay Thai Federations MTBN (Muay Thai Bond Nederland) and WMTA (World Muay Thai Association). The 1st competition Thaiboxer of Baas (teaching @ Wadokan Haarlem) was Khalid El Aater, who made a successful debut (Eindhoven 1996). The 1st Baas fighter who won by KO was Erçan Yüksel (Hellevoetsluis 1996). The 1st female fighter was Palmira Sandvliet with a 1st round victory at the Mix Fight Night (Haarlem 1996). The 1st fighter of Baas in an international fight was Boubkar Belkasmi, who won Belgium (Bladel 1996). Many successes followed and because of the great success in relation to the small dojo, the group moved to a bigger location, the sports facility of the M.L. King School, where Baas already gave Taekwondo classes. Also in this photo compilation a lot of top fighters and top trainers (insiders know them and their track records); The Late Jon Bluming, Chris Dolman, Peter Aerts, Gilbert Ballantine, Gerold Mamadeus, Peter Teysse, Thom Harinck, The Late Dennis de Preter, Lucien Carbin, Dick Smolders, The Late Nordin Ben Salah, Ronnie Jackson, Michel van Zeelt, Ino Alberga, John Akkerman, Glen Huisman, Peter Koopman, Pedro Rizzo, Denis “De Rus” Sharoykin and many more.

In no-time Edwin Baas became A-class and competed in a lot of international tournaments and championships in Denmark, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, etc. and in a few years he became black belt of the TBN (Taekwondo Bond Nederland) and WTF (World Taekwondo Federation).
