Enfusion 8 sub-labels

ENFUSION

Enfusion belt night

Enfusion Belt Night:

Enfusion Belt Night is the newest concept of the Enfusion sub-labels. Enfusion Belt Night has higher standards than the normal Enfusion events, when it comes to matchmaking and production. A Belt Night is a label for both fans as broadcasters, that guarantees quality.
An Enfusion Belt Night has at least 3 title fights during one live show. 


There will be previous elimination fights of 5x3 minute rounds and the winner of an elimination fight will receive a shot for the Enfusion belt.

Elimination fights can be fought on any Enfusion event and we try to have the Belt fight within a few months after the Elimination fight.
There are only elimination fights in the men categories, not (yet) in the female divisions.


In case of exceptional names, the fighters with a respected martial arts name, Enfusion can make an exception and arrange a direct title match. 

An example of this was Buakaw in Abu Dhabi.

An Enfusion Belt night has a maximum of 6 fights during a live show because of the time slot.

Edwin started training in kickboxing in 1988 at the age of 19.

In 1994 he bought his trainers gym named Georges Grandjean, he re named it Gym Alkmaar and began teaching full time.

  He soon attracted new students to the gym and started a new generation of fighters producing some of the top names Ozkan Oktay, Sahin Kaas Yakut and Dennis Strybis who fought World wide and became champions which then started to put Gym Alkmaar on the map.

 

 Gym Alkmaar became very popular with students wanting to train. The demand for his tuition soon out grew the original gym of 100 square meters so Edwin moved to a bigger premises of 1500 square meters during 1996 creating more space and an fully equipped enviroment for his students to train full time. Which soon attracted many more fighters, which moved from abroad to train with him in his new full time gym which soon became renowned. Many big names were produced in Gym Alkmaar..

2002 Edwin started a new company with Simon Rutz for promoting events and managing professional fighters the name of the company was “Its Showtime”.

It grew over the years, with the highlight event held once per year in the Amsterdasm arena in the soccer stadium of Ajax drawing crowds of 15,000 spectactors and broadcast world wide.

In 2004 Remon Daalder joined partnership and in 2006 Edwin and Remon Daalder started resort Superpro Samui in Thailand, which is thriving to this day as top professional fighters travel especially to Superpro to prepare for their upcoming bouts and to make use of the 4 boxing rings, cage, fitness center whilst staying in the camp facilities.

2011 Edwin added another label to his ever growing business, Fighting Rookies would be the first stepping stone for a semi professional fighter to be exposed and a chance to be scouted by Edwin Van Os himself.

 

Its showtime was sold in 2012 to Glory worldseries, leaving Edwin no longer in partnership, this would allow him with his own visions of broadcasting in the kickboxing world.

 

2013 Enfusion Live was born. A concept to broadcast a top production as well as top fighters from around the world to the spectators at home.
