Remy Bonjasky made a name for himself in the kickboxing world for his flying kicks and knee attacks. Born Remy Kenneth Bonjasky on January 10, 1976 in Suriname, he was raised in the Netherlands. His family moved to the Netherlands when he was five years old. Initially, Remy got involved in football (soccer) which is the major sport in the Netherlands. At the age of 16, he broke his left leg. This situation made him quit football as he realized he would not be able to recover his skills. This was a devastating decision for Remy, but also a life-changing one. At the age of 18, after a conversation about Jean Claude van Dame's film, "Bloodsport", he and his friend joined the "Mejiro Gym" to train for Thai boxing. He fell for the sport almost immediately. After six months of hard training, he made his debut in a match against Valentijn Overeem. Bonjasky defeated Overeem by TKO. A career of successes followed after this. Bonjasky has won the K-1 World Grand Prix three times, in 2003, 2004, and 2008. His loss at K-1 WGP 2005 in the semifinals against SemmySchilt kept him from being champion for three consecutive times. His last fight was on March 8, 2014 where he defeated MirkoCro Cop during the event "Glory 14: Zagreb". Bonjasky spent several years as a banker and network administrator after majoring from university. He has also made some work as a model. Remy Bonjasky eventually founded his own kickboxing gym, "Bonjasky Academy" in Almere, Netherlands in 2010.
