Combat sports are popular and have great potential to contribute to social issues.
Baas teaches and trains in a safe and responsible way, within a good pedagogical climate and where social involvement has an important place.
Many young people take the right path through training and guidance.
Many, especially children, also gained self-confidence through the training and coaching.

Edwin Baas has been, and still is, voluntarily committed to the community since the moment he came to Curaçao in August 2001, mainly Curaçao youth.
For many years he has been, and still is, a member of the board of non-profit organizations such as the Curacao Martial Arts Federation CUMAFE (since 2003) and the Curacao Boxing Association CuraBox (since 2009) with which he has organized many activities selflessly. Baas has spent and still spends many hours of free time and energy on administrative and practical duties and organizing various activities.

Baas connects the different boxing clubs, martial arts centers and gyms on the island and tries to get the athletes to compete as often as possible.
In addition to his passion for sport, he also makes this accessible for anyone who wants to practice. Nothing is too much for him and if necessary he even sacrifices his vacation to transfer the boxing and martial arts virus to the youth. 

Many other clubs originated from Baas’ club. Baas has always stimulated this, often facilitated it and also helped to get the people who came from his club on their way.
The reason Baas did this is because he believes that more competition is also possible through multiple clubs and in this way combat sports develop in Curacao.
Baas has a full-time job, as a physiotherapist at Fundashon Verriet of De SGR-Groep, and a family life. He already spends many hours of his free time on the sport, often too much. With more clubs there are more places for those interested.

Baas regularly provides his services free of charge to various organizations that have no commercial goals and/or a very limited budget. Most of these activities are not photographed for privacy reasons, but with the following photos you do get an idea.

If you are not in the pictures, don’t take it personal. Edwin Baas is proud of all of you, everyone who has the guts to enter the ring. With participating you’re already a winner. Losers don’t exist in combat sports.
Baas is also proud of all those who have not competed (yet), and train hard and practice the sport seriously.
