History

The gym was founded in 1972 by Thom Harinck, who origanally began teaching his own style named "Chakuriki", a mixture of techniques from boxing, Kyokushin karate, judo, jujutsu and wrestling.[1]

Chakuriki later became a kickboxing gym as Harinck added Muay Thai and Savate to his repetoir. In 1978, fighters from Chakuriki became the first Dutch to fight at Lumpini Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.[2]
