LiverKick is very proud to announce that our good friends, Daniel Dee and Karel ten Haaf, who run the "Short Circuit" blog and writers of the Dutch book, K-1: Of the Beauty and Power will be penning the biography of the legendary Dutch Lumberjack, Mr. K-1 himself, Peter Aerts. They released a statement earlier today on the book and will send out more updates as they come.
"Last Wednesday we spoke with martial arts legend Peter Aerts and his wife Esther. After a cozy and especially fruitful conversation, we with great pride announce that Peter Aerts agreed that we - Daniel Dee and Karel ten Haaf - are to write his biography.
The triple K-1 world champion is as famous in Japan as Johan Cruyff is in the Netherlands. Moreover, Peter Aerts is dearly loved and popular in Japan and the Netherlands. We have therefore agreed that the biography will not only be released in the Netherlands but also in Japan.
Esther and Peter Aerts believe that it is important that it is a richly illustrated book, which is logical, because martial arts is of course a prime spectator sport. The intention is that a large format book (say about A4) in full color. A coffee table book about the life and work of one of the largest Dutch athletes ever."
