Wrestling and boxing classes with coach @mmaluke11 tonight. β˜‘οΈ . Luke and I have been training together since 2012.. I followed him out to @bangkokfightlab this year; I saved my money, quit my teaching jobs, left the people I love back home, and flew out to Bangkok to start a new chapter. I could have never done it without this guy, who let me stay on his couch until I was settled in and able to get my own little place. πŸ™ . Thank you @bangkokfightlab / @morganperkinsjj for taking me in and making me feel at home .. I can't wait to represent you guys in battle. 🦍 . Good things come to those who work hard, never give up, and are willing to risk losing it all in their pursuit of greatness.. I'm only just now heating up. πŸ”₯ #P4P #TheDutchTouch #Thailand #Bangkok #MMA #wrestling #boxing #bjj #muaythai #kickboxing #tkd #yoga #bangkokfightlab #nourishcafe #fightlife

Whatever it is that you truly want, no one is going to get it for you . . .

Releasing my inner Guru on The Unlock Wellness Podcast #139 with @drkaseyjohnson. I had a blast, thank you for having me!!πŸ™Œ Details below πŸ”»πŸ”»πŸ”» #Repost @drkaseyjohnson (@get_repost ) ・・・ πŸŽ™πŸŽ§Catch up on this week’s new episodes of The Unlock Wellness Podcast! In Episode 139, I talk with Erik Van Der Lee (@van.der.leecious )! Erik is a vegan professional fighter. He has trained under James Wilks @lightningwilks , a former UFC fighter that is also doing incredible work in the plant-based world. But after signing up for a free week in James's gym a few years ago, he quickly learned that this type of training was his passion. Shortly into his training, Erik started implementing a plant-based diet, and it has completely transformed his health and athletic performance. πŸ₯ŠπŸŒ± Excited to share our conversation!😊 πŸŽ™πŸŽ™Episode available on iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, YouTube, Google Play, Stitcher, and most other podcast apps!🎧🎧 πŸ‘‰πŸΌLink in bio!!!πŸ‘ˆπŸΌ Keep up with Erik on social media!πŸ“²πŸ’» β€’ Instagram: @van.der.leecious Enjoy!❀️
This past weekend my teammate and close friend @justingovernale earned his black belt. Justin has played a pivotal role in my development as a fighter and as a person. He is the true embodiment of 'the relentless pursuit of a dream.' I'm super proud of you man--- In a few weeks he will be moving to Texas to start a new chapter of his life, along with my other teammate , the GURU, @mikeseguramma. I am blessed to have shared the mats with you guys for all these years. How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard #Subfighter #MMA #wrestling #bjj #jiujitsu #blackbelt #boxing #kickboxing #muaythai #tkd #yoga
We are all on our own journey; a path that is uniquely our own. Sometimes we get the opportunity to share a piece of this with other people, and you might come to find out that our roads aren't so different after all; It's a blessing to find people we can relate to, discuss ideas, and share laughter with. Thank you @gym.crashers for the in-depth interview last night, and allowing me to share Michael Guymons' "kidnapper" with you guys for the technique of the week! It was an honor being part of your show and an overall great experience.

If you wanna chop down a tree, you're gonna have to stand right in front of it and start swinging that axe. 🌳 -------------------------------------------- We all face different trees every day, whether that means someone is trying to take your head off, maybe you can't have that herb garden you always wanted because the palm tree takes up too much space -- or even an unfulfilled desire to be great; Whatever type of obstacle is in your way right now.. grab your sharpest tools, and let's get to work! β³βŒ› #MMA #BJJ #jiujitsu #boxing #kickboxing #muaythai #tkd #yoga #Subfighter #ChosAcademy #plantbased #vegan #fighter #TuffNuff #tb #throwback

Sometimes we go against the grain, other times we find ourselves in the midst of it. Thank you #Nederland for all the 'gezelligheid' and good times. I truly appreciate everyone who made this trip possible for @francesca_dominique and I, it was truly one for the books-- This ones' for you guys. #Bokito
I walked in to @goldengloryberlin and was approached by the head instructor Tarek. He told me that "This is fight class; they will try and KO you. Are you sure you want to stay?" For a second, I went "Hmmmm." Then I looked down and noticed my humongous balls. "Fuck it." Fast forward-- had an awesome experience and am currently limping back to Klaus' airbnb. I love my life. #goldenglory #berlin #k1 #kickboxing #muaythai #boxing #travel #fightorflight
