As soon as the legend arrived at the sports hall he was welcomed with a song by the young athletes. At the end of the morning session, he was even surprised with a big birthday cake and the number 18 on it. He showed a great sense of humor, by saying he is feeling like he is 37 years old.

Everybody wanted to take a picture with Aerts, and of course, he had absolutely no problem with that. He expressed his gratefulness at the end of the practice. The second session of the day was even more special, as another fellow kickboxing legend and friend of Aerts took part in it – Ernesto Hoost. They were both teaching and correcting the fighters’ mistakes.
