Meet Georgina Van der Linden

Georgina Van der Linden aged 13  is our latest SANDEE Junior fighter to join our SANDEE Academy, and our first fighter from Holland. We saw Georgina fight in an epic battle against one of our other SANDEE female Juniors  Dakota Ditcheva from Manchester UK, on one of the biggest Muay Thai Shows in the UK, the Main Event at the USM Bolton Arena on the 7th June 2014, and from that fight alone we were so impressed with Georgina's fighting spirit we wanted on board our SANDEE fight team.

The Main Event fight against Dakota  proved to be up their with the adults on the main card as a thrilling back and forth affair with both girls showing amazing technique, ringcraft, and aggression that seemed totally at odds with their respective ages of 13 and 15. At that age you only normally see that level of talent and fight maturity in professional camps in Thailand.

Holland has always been a powerhouse of Thai Boxing right back from the days Rob Kamen, Ramon Dekker  and Lucia Rijker and it comes as no surprise to lean  that Georgina has been learning Kickboxing from an early age coached by her father former fighter Dennis Van Der Linden. Georgina starting training age six in K1 style rules before switching to Muay Thai in the last 3 years. Coach and father Dennis puts her success down to the her willingness to learn,

"I had my own gym where i trained her 5 days a week. Now we changes gym we train Now at Oosterbaan gym. Before i was i fighter but quit because Georgina's passion. my daughter is more important than my own fights. Since Georgina put on the gloves and hit the pads i stopped as a fighter and started as a trainer  that's a bout 6/7 years ago. She has such a will to learn and she has turned into a complete fighter"
