KWU International Camp Day 2: Stay light on your feet

“Stay light on your feet and never stop moving”.

That was the agenda for the first training session of the second day of the ongoing International KWU Professional League Camp in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The first concourse for the day was all about moving and mixing combinations. More than 200 fighters from 12 countries got separated into two groups by the K-1 legends Semmy Schilt and Peter Aerts at the “Arena Armeec” hall in the capital city.

“The Dutch Lumberjack” directed the focus of his group at the importance of knowing where and when to move in and move out. Aerts, who was accompanied by his son – Marciano, demonstrated a lot of exceptional counterattack techniques which all acquired a lot of movements around the adversary. The three-time K-1 heavyweight king insisted several times that one of the most important things is to always change levels and to attack various parts of your opponent’s body.

Meanwhile, “The Hightower” Semmy Schilt was putting emphasis on the importance of combining different combinations into one. The four-time K-1 heavyweight champ was assisted by Sensei Zahari Damyanov. Schilt was showcasing some powerful combinations that included knees and punches that could be helpful when the fighter is in attack mode and some excellent counterattacking tips for when the fighter is on his back foot.

Representatives of the Bulgarian Karate Kyokushin Federation and the Bulgarian Kickboxing and Muay Thai Confederation are taking part in the camp. There are many foreign fighters, too.
