Mini Biography: Ron Smoorenburg is a 4th degree black belt in Freefight, and holds several records such as highest kick (11 feet).
There aren’t many movie fighters that are from outside the USA or Asia, but there are only 3 Dutch martial artists who made it to American movies. Ron is one of them, besides Bas Rutten and Rob Kaman.
Ron’s career started after his movie with Jackie Chan in Who Am I? at the age of 23. Ron sent some tapes to Jackie’s producers and got the role, for which he’s very grateful. His career got an immediate boost, and many more movies will come.
A highlight is his trip to Thailand. There he worked with Tony Jaa and became very, very popular and did several other projects.
Ron now has his own casting agency for martial artists and stunt performers.

Give us your questions for Ron!
To all the haters…die!!!
