InvictaFC’s Marloes Coenen is the renaissance woman of MMA and this past week saw her hit the national scene in the Netherlands.
Coenen had the official grand opening of her new R-grip gym in Amsterdam, which came with a lot of fan fair. The mayor of Amsterdam Eberhard van der Laan helped open the gym to the public, with kickboxing champion Gokhan Saki doing demonstrations and introducing people to the new gym in the area. Coenen is hoping to build the future of both men and women in the fighting arts. The gym is also affiliated with Coenen’s fight team Golden Glory.
You can watch one of the local reports from GeenStijl TV (in Dutch) here, featuring Coenen, Saki, and the mayor of Amsterdam. Still entertaining if you don’t speak the language.
Also, as reported Wombat Sports a few weeks ago, Coenen will be on the reality show “The Treasure of Orange” with premiere Mar. 30 on SBS 6 in the Netherlands. A new preview is out, this time with Coenen heavily featured.
