  • About

    Said has coached elite level fighters in MMA, Kickboxing and Muay Thai, including the likes of Badr Hari, Melvin Manhoef, Ilias Bulaid, Ilias Ennahachi and Tayfun Özcan. His creative take on striking mixes the Dutch style of high volume aggression and pressure with high Fight IQ concepts and strategies.

    Said originally started Kickboxing when he was a small child before having his first competitive fight not long after he turned 14. Competing regularly from that point on, he turned professional fighter just three years later at the age of 17.

    Unfortunately, a severe motorcycle accident cut short his competitive career in 2001. He moved into coaching full time in 2004.

    His full time facility, SB Gym in Utrecht, Holland, regularly attracts fighters and coaches from all over the world to visit and train with him.
