My name is Leroy Spalburg and I had my first encounter with kickboxing in the late nineties. Ever since that first time, I have become addicted to this beautiful and versatile sport. I soon became fascinated by the history of kickboxing, the many different styles it has and the high level at which many Dutch kickboxing gyms operate. Where most people strive to become fighters and get into the ring, I mostly enjoy training other people and teaching them what I know. It is my own personal challenge to learn as many techniques as possible. After a start at Vos Gym Amsterdam, I soon started to look beyond my own gym and started training at other gyms to. And in 2008 (Phuket) and 2016 (Koh Samui), I went to Thailand to learn the Thai way of training and develop myself further.
