Healthy dose of sparring marked the first day of the KWU camp in Sofia

Exciting and explosive. That’s the conclusion from the opening day of the ongoing KWU International Professional League Camp that takes place in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The sublimate event is being held at the training facility of “Arena Armeec” hall in the capital city, with more than 130 fighters and coaches taking part in it.



Some of the very best Bulgarian kickboxers are participating in the camp, all of them medalists from many national and international tournaments.


Shihan Ivo Kamenov, the Executive director of the KWU Professional League and Chairman of the National combat sports association in Bulgaria, was giving out valuable lessons to the elite of fighters around him. He paid attention to all the boys and girls inside the training facility, pointing out accurate recommendations to them.

“In those strange times we are living now, you should all find time for improving your technique and to perfect everything you’ve learned up to this point“, Shihan Kamenov said to the participants.

Once again, kickboxing legend Peter Aerts didn’t leave much time for the fighters to rest, pushing them to emphasize the proper technique and positioning, rather than the number of strikes. “The Dutch Lumberjack” got inside the specially prepared ring where he demonstrated niceties regarding ring movements and awareness.
