Your Trainer

Joost Raaijmaakers

At age 13 I started my martial arts journey, now almost 27 years later I studied arts like Kempo, Muay Thai and Boxing but my real passion lays with Eskrima and Jeet Kune Do. I have competed in Eskrima and won several prizes like Dutch Champion and silver on the European championships in sparring and sayaw (freestyle forms). The last 10 years I started teaching my knowledge to others and I have helped many students reach their goals. Whether the goal was just to start moving again and have fun or develop serious combat skills with or without a weapon. I also love to create martial arts content on social media and reached over 1.4 million followers on my TikTok page.
