Jack (pronounced Sjaak) van de Wal graduated from the Academie voor Lichamelijke Opvoeding (ALO) in 1993. He then worked for two years as an outdoor instructor and event manager before starting as a high school FE teacher. From his interest and passion for the martial arts, he obtained dan-degrees and teaching qualifications in a number of disciplines. Based on this expertise, Jack started working as a Martial Arts lecturer at the bachelor programme Sportkunde - leerroute SM&O in 2006.

Since 2008 his job has been extended with Team sports, Management skills training and Coaching. For Jack, sport is not only a passion in his work, but also outside it. Sitting still for a day is a task, so after that there is always some sporting action: white water kayaking, (surf) canoeing, mountain biking, cycling, skating/skating, running, martial arts... Jack likes everything!
