GET TO KNOW ME
HOW MARTIJN DISCOVERED FREESTYLE SOCCER
Football has dominated my life since childhood. I could barely walk and already wanted to play football. As a little boy I started with first division team KV Oostende. After a serious injury, I decided to study street football. I made a lot of progress in a short time. On Youtube I searched for new tricks, took my ball and spent hours on the street practicing. Sometimes certain tricks only work after more than 500 attempts. The many practice hours do not feel like a sacrifice to me. The satisfaction and adrenaline I feel when a new trick succeeds is the best thing in my life.
EEN ALL-ROUND FREESTYLER VOETBALLER
People know me as an all-rounder who knows how to impress an audience with his enthusiasm.
With my drive, passion and talent, I have managed to win quite a few prices already. Two of those are Belgian champion in panna and Benelux Champion.
On the kids channel VTM Kids, Michiel and me are presenting the program: “Vollenbak Voetbal”.
DIPLOMA IN PHYSICAL EXERCISE
For me, it was very important to get a diploma. Since I love to pass on the sporting bug to other youngsters, the choice of becoming a Physical Exercice teacher was a no-brainer. In 2018, I successfully obtained my diploma.
These days, I am getting the chance to do great gigs in Belgium and other countries. My soccer ball brought me in Russia, Denmark, France, Ukraine, Spain, Egypt, … I have met some of the best soccer players in the world such as Marcelo, Neymar, Jan Vertonghen, Willian, Thomas Meunier, Michy Batschuayi… Their appreciation for me is a great honour.
