Houda Loukili grew up in the Netherlands and she first came into contact with kickboxing at the age of 11. She soon found out that kickboxing makes her heart beat faster. She feels at home in the gym and trains 6 days a week. She quickly got the hang of it and in 2005 she became Dutch Youth Champion.
Naturally, she chose Sports Management and Movement as her education. She has been inspired herself as a young girl by her coach – and aims to offer others that same inspiration now. To be a coach for “the other”.
With her knowledge and experience in top-class sports and her social-pedagogical background, she knows how to reach girls and get them moving – literally. Houda makes young people feel relevant and that they are capable of more than they think. As a consultant, Houda likes to take a fresh look at a project. In developing programs, she makes a fine mixture of her knowledge and experience linked to theory.
Her mission is to give coaches the tools to make sports more accessible for girls. She believes it is important that every individual can play sports according to his or her own considered condition and stands for equality and diversity in sports.
