IRON SHARPENS IRONThe fight game is competitive and constantly changing, therefore a constant update of knowledge is key. “We’ve both been very good at studying ourselves, studying other people’s fight moves and researching stuff, and we’ve never really researched the same thing. One person would research one area and then teach the other” - Mathijs One dimensional and fixed mindset are 2 traits you will not associate with these two. A strong work ethic coupled with a clear but varied way of thinking has lead to a duo of well rounded and versatile fighters. “You don’t want specialised fighters, you want specialised teachers” -Mathijs So what's next? Lofty goals of owning a one stop destination where they train the best fighters that is also a cool place to hang out. Picture the results of what would happen if a dojo and beach bar had a baby...that's what they're shooting for, and personally I couldn't be more here for it. Ultimately though, the biggest goal and a fundamental way of achieving the bigger target is to maintain health. “Staying healthy. It’s very hard to stay healthy and train a lot. I think all high level athletes struggle with this. For every Ronaldinho there’s 200 guys just as good with a torn knee because you have to push the limit but not go over it.” - Thijmen There's an old adage in sports that "Dumb will get you beat". That definitely does not apply here. These 2 brothers are high IQ practitioners and they stay winning because of it.
