If you have been anywhere near the Kickboxing or Muay Thai world during the past 40 years, then you don’t really need an introduction to the legendary Mejiro Gym.
For the others, Mejiro Gym is the pioneer gym from Amsterdam that blended western boxing, karate kyokushin and Muay Thai into a very effective style of K-1 Kickboxing that would later become known as the Dutch style of Kickboxing.
Several K-1 and Muay Thai legends have been crafted under Mejiro Gym
and reigned on K-1 and Muay Thai during the years such as: Rob Kaman
, Lucien Carbin
, Peter Aerts
, Remy Bonjasky
, André Mannaart
(current sensei at Mejiro Gym Amsterdam), Roël Mannaart, Brice Guidon
or Andy Souwer
to name a few.
Needless to say, if you are a fan of the infamous Dutch combinations and their devastating low kicks, there is no better place to learn them in Bali.
Despite their pedigree, you don’t have to be a world champion to discover Muay Thai, boxing or Kickboxing at Mejiro Gym Bali. Everybody is welcomed from pure beginners to pros, and from kids to less young than average. If you don’t want to spar, fitness (Kick)boxing is even offered, on top of pad holding private lessons.
People in recovery can also join the physiotherapy practice
and do functional movements sessions with a certified physiotherapist.
If you are in Sanur and want to discover a combat sport or a martial art in a friendly and family-like environment, then you can’t be wrong heading to Mejiro Gym Bali.
