Arnaud van der Veere started Muay Thai in 1968. His trainers were people from Thailand, who emigrated to Holland in the early 1960s. In 1975, Arnaud traveled to Thailand where he encountered the original practice of the sport. He trained in many different gyms and fought as farang Thai under Thai coaches and trainers, and he started teaching in 1979. Soon the Dutch government found his work useful as he was able to help groups that others were not even able to reach. The government hired him to train and help special, extremely difficult adolescence groups.
After he graduated from university with a doctorate in biochemistry, he studied marketing (Erasmus University Rotterdam) and created 12 different courses/schools and still continues to educate himself.
Since his first book on kickboxing in 1984, Arnaud van der Veere has written many books, which have been translated into different languages, and thousands of articles in magazines and newspapers, acted in movies and in high-level stage programs, has been on TV, and conducted seminars worldwide.
