At the end of three tough workouts, it’s time for sparring! The opening day of the second KWU International Professional League training camp for 2022 could not have ended better. The event takes place in the new modern sports hall of Varna “SENSHI Gym” and will last until Sunday (May 8).
The three groups were again led by K-1 legends Semmy Schilt, Ernesto Hoost and Albert Kraus.
Everyone of them had its own training hall.
The former “K-1 MAX” and “SUPERKOMBAT” welterweight and middleweight champion Albert Kraus took under his wings the young and uprising fighters. Vladimir Valev-The Pitbull, who is the first world champion in kickboxing for professionals for Bulgaria, checked in. He performed the techniques along with the talents and gave them valuable guidance.
Four-time K-1 heavyweight champion Semmy Schilt kept the theme of the last seminars, as he continued his work with the coaches, senseis and instructors. “Hightower” showcased various exercises and games which the instructors could implement into their training sessions for kids and youths.
The other four-time heavyweight K-1 champion Ernesto Hoost was in command of the active fighters group. “Mr.Perfect” was all smiles in the morning and his spirit caught up to the others around him. The Dutch demonstrated a lot of techniques of his own arsenal – mostly the ones including knees and low kicks. He didn’t forget the defense aspect of the game, kindly pointing out mistakes and putting emphasis on the little details.
There will be three training sessions again on Saturday.
