    He fought Genki Sudo not too long ago in a K-1 event. It was MMA rules so Sudo won in the 1st round.

    AFAIK, dekkers has 200 fights, more or less, is in his late 30's and is loaded on old serious injuries.

    More information here.

    At one point he was on the verge of losing his right leg.

    I've got a documentary, well, more like an interview with him and footage of his fights, very interesting to watch.

    This guy is awesome.

    He did a two day seminar for like 50 bucks a head here in Kentucky a few months ago . I wanted to shoot myself for not being able to make it.

    He did a 2 day seminar for 70 in Louisville, but I was out of town and not really all that interested.

    He's done seminars in Spain for even less (one day seminar). I've been told that the seminar is conducted more by Cor Hemmers than Dekkers, and that Dekkers himself mostly shows the thechnique while Hemmers is the one doing the real teaching.

    Anyway, you're training with Dekkers and being trained by the man who taught him everything.
