Martin Voorthuijsen, a trend setter in Amsterdam.
Martin was one of the first, if not the first, in opening of a boxing gym in Amsterdam, where he trained constantly as part of his career as a professional boxer.
Alcohol and substance abuse made him quit but he stills keeps a sharp and powerful jab by practicing with a punching back in the middle of his living room.
While Serve the City volunteers helped painting his living room, he told us stories from his past, both happy and sad, while offering some refreshments and filling the room with amazing Russian choir tunes.
“I am grateful for the help, and now that I know STC also has other projects, I might be able to help there myself. I am good at cooking!”
