    Absolutely phenomenal trainer. Slavi has accommodated my and my fiancés learning styles and pace of learning. Hes patient, highly knowledgeable, and observant of our form. He ensures we understand the foundational moves so we can build upon those and become better fighters and corrects us until we get it right.
    Besides his abilities as a coach, Slavi has a great personality and is easy to have fun with while still remaining professional, dedicated, and firm. Well be sticking with him for as long as possible. We cant say enough good things about him!

    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. Weve 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!

    After a decade in Martial Arts, I realized that I wanted this to become my profession.  At a later stage, I felt that in addition to training, I loved teaching other people what I had learned.  That's why I graduated with a Master's degree in sports and acquired a pedagogical specialty.

    I have been practicing martial arts for 40 years. I love my job.

    All types. Personal trainer of several Hollywood action stars.

    I love martial arts and that's why I discover something new every day. UFC, Glory, Olympics and ect.

    It is very important for students to be careful and concentrated, because if they listen to their teacher, they will learn a lot.
