"If I don't have time to go out to a gym, I do it right in my back yard. Or, the last four times that I went to Japan to do the commentary for the Pride show, I do the workout in my hotel room, just to stay in shape. You can do it all by yourself as a shadow box routine, in the gym on the bag, or with a partner on the focus mitts or Thai pads."

"Even though I am a kickboxer, I love to do the all-round fighting tape because it gets me really tired, and beats hitting the bag."
"Do this workout and it will get you in great shape!"
"It's a great workout, but that's not all. You have to stay very focused on what Bas is teaching, and listen and react to every single thing he says to get the most out of the workout. That way it's both fun, and useful for your fightgame."
"Bas' Training is the best, I can used it when I am on the road and it pushes me to my best or Beast limits. I recommend it to anyone... except my opponents!!!"
