"Work hard and never give up ... on and off the mat!" - Kenny

A round of applause please! ataste is welcoming a new family member and again we’re honored to be talking about a yet another black belt and pillar of the Belgian BJJ scene. Welcome Kenny Polmans!

Aside from running Bad Boys BJJ with Bart Creemers, where you can find Kenny coaching and working out, he’s also a regular at the team Brasa training sessions. .

Hard work and never quit is a deep rooted mantra for Kenny and not just on the mat. Diagnosed with cancer in 2010, his winners mentality became a matter of life and death. No doubt his victory against the big C is leading his extensive list of titles and achievements. A true inspiration to us all!

Today Kenny is the epitome of health and strength and constantly concerned with exercises and healthy nutrition. Which makes the collaboration with ataste all the more obvious.

Besides organizing training session and seminars, you can also book Kenny for private lessons (contact via info@grappling.be or facebook.com/kenny.polmans).

Welcome to the Family Kenny!

Below some of Kenny’s achievements for 2012. We don't doubt that 2013 will another great year!
