What Lucia Rijker Knows
Photos/Story by Lori Steinhorst

(MAR 17)  Sometimes we think we know what a fighter is all about. We watch them train, we see them fight, and we know their record. Do we understand who they are and why they do what they do? Probably not. However, we watched Lucia Rijker progress through the ranks, almost effortlessly. When her punch was measured for power against a male counterpart, Lucia displayed nearly 200lbs more power than the other boxer. How did that happen? Where did that power come from?


What does Lucia Rijker know that we dont? I recently had the opportunity to discover a little bit more about the Rijker Striker method of instruction. There is plenty about Lucia that we will never really know, but what I did learn is that Rijker is an expert on Rijker. She knows who she is, and she knows who you are, that is, if she is working with you. She takes some time to understand who you are and what it will take to instruct you. She is intuitive. She understands the mission and carries it out impeccably.

Lucia has expectations, of herself and her student. She knows her game and she knows life. There is a depth to Lucia Rijker that you would most likely miss if you did not grasp a moment to observe her teach. Teaching comes natural to her. Lucia can convey a message, an instruction, and a lesson in a barely audible voice and have it resonate through your mind like the bang of a drum. It is a remarkable thing to observe.


So, where does the power come from? It is an amazing surge of energy that flows from within the mind, through the spirit, causing an explosion of the body directed to the hands and delivered precisely to the intended target.

Lucia Rijker knows exactly what it means to channel the mind, body and spirit into a force of power balanced with skill and technique. An opportunity to train with her would be a blessing for any fighter looking to fill a void in standard training. I was impressed. What Lucia Rijker knows, we all should know.
