I have a master's degree in Sports Academy.  Certified American Fitness personal trainer. The lesson can last 30, 45 or 60 minutes.

My gym is in Hollywood. I also teach a wide range of LA in various parks and have all the martial arts equipment. I observe all necessary precautions to prevent the spread of viruses.

I like to teach people to defend themselves and a healthy lifestyle. I believe that one day my clients will become better than me.

    Coach Slavi is professional and positive. The first lesson with my 12 year old went extremely well - he is quick to correct, communicates his knowledge & respect for Muay Thai, and is clearly experienced. We've already signed up for another lesson and hope to make this a long-term commitment.

    Slavi is undoubtedly one of the TOP and most outstanding fighters and trainers in Europe. His knowledge is unparalleled as is his incredible fighter resume. Being a professional fighter myself, I have had the unique opportunity to train with and learn from Slavi first hand. Not only is he the BEST trainer in Sofia, but he’s also an extremely kind, grounded, spiritual and supremely friendly and funny guy!! Every training session with Slavi is like a full body and mind workout. Can’t say enough!
