History of Edwin Van Os, CEO of Enfusion

Edwin Van Os (born 16 May 1969) in Alkmaar, The Netherlands. Edwin attended school in Alkmaar and after secoundry school he attended Detex TMO textile management in Doorn during 1987-1989 which educated him in retail and the textiles industry. Edwin then began his own retail chain of shops called Van Os and soon ran 7 outlets. Edwin started training in kickboxing in 1988 at the age of 19. In 1994 he bought his trainers gym named Georges Grandjean which was situated opposite one of the shop outlets, 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 prodcasted world wide. In 2004 Remon Daalder joined partnership and in 2006 Edwin and Ramon 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 fight and to make use of the 4 boxing rings, cage, fitness center whilst staying in the camp facilities.

During 2007 Edwin started working on productions, initially as a commentator before becoming host of the show, as well as its producer, director and executive producer. A very versatile individual. Edwin started the brand Enfusion Reality in 2008, a reality production bringing the top fighters from across the world to compete for the prestigious Enfusion World Title belts in different weight catergories along with a cash prize.

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, 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. Enfusion live is currently running very strong hosting 12 Enfusion Live events per year from different countries and show casing the new stars in the sport. Edwin began his own management company in 2013 and holds a strong stable of fighters which he has scouted himself.
