"Excellent city, great technical camp"
About the city: 10/10
When I first thought about going on this boxing camp, I was a bit weary as Ukraine does not have the image of being the safest place to travel. However those fears were quickly washed away and by the end of the camp I came to truly love the city. The city is beautiful with many historic monuments, parks and great shops, restaurants. At least for me, I did not feel in danger at all and the people who I encountered were all very friendly.
About the Food: 10/10
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food in Kiev. From the European nations I visited I would rate the quality of food in Ukraine to be one of the best. (100 times better than London for sure in terms of value for money!)
About the Gym: 10/10
The gym is in a very convenient location, near the hotel and near many restaurants and a major shopping mall. It is clean and has numerous equipment to work with.
About the Training: 9/10
The trainer Dmitry is a very diligent and sincere guy. He is always on time and genuinely wants you to improve. This is not a typical boxing bootcamp with focus on fitness, you must be warned that the training is very technical and there are difficult times but it will definitely help you improve your boxing.

The training was very good. Dmitry the trainer was extremely patient and had a huge range of exercises and techniques to iron out weaknesses.

"An amazing experience "
Dmitry is a great instructor and a very fun guy to train with. His attention to detail and boxing knowledge is incredible, and he is always finding new metaphors and ways to bring the science behind what you're trying to achieve to life. The course is incredibly technical, which is exactly what I wanted, and over the 6 days, I really saw great improvements and fluency in my boxing. If you go for the 4* hotel option you're in for a decent hotel, the staff there were super helpful and always going out their way to help. It was a hugely enjoyable experience, made all the more by Dmitry's friendly and fun attitude to the week.

"Excellent camp for those who take boxing seriously"
So you think you can box? Think again, because Dmitry is going to show you a whole new world. He is a great coach and very professional. He is always on time and respects his obligations. Bear in mind that this camp is no joke. Forget about partying every evening in Kiev, this is for dedicated athletes. You have to be focused, persistent and mentally strong, because it does get tough. However, once you'll get home and back to your old gym you'll see, how much you've developed. Definitely worth every cent.

"Great experience "
The boxing camp in itself was a very enjoyable experience. Had the opportunity to learn from a very credible coach. He helped me on my overall technique and general approach to training. It’s amazing how much improvement you can make under the right coach in a short amount of time. Definitely would do it again

"An instructive and rewarding experience!"
The camp was great! I have MMA wrestling background, low level in boxing that's why I wanted to improve my boxing skills. It was really far beyond my expectations!
The coach Dmitry is very patient, experienced and passionate about teaching, showing you the right movement and the good technique, learning step by step, basics first then more difficult level. The gym is nice, all equipment inside, friendly fighters.
The accommodation place was confortable about 5-10min by walk from the gym and everything arround, métro station, shops, restaurants etc. Kiev is a beautiful capital, also the plus is that the life cost is not expensive.
I definitely recommend this camp!

"top notch high quality boxing"
IT was amazing how much I have learned here. Dmitry has such a good understanding of the sports in a physical and a mental way. He is very clear if you're doing something wrong and he will work hard with you to make it right. He was genuinely passionate about me doing it the right way.
Apart from that he has all kinds of comparisons and metaphors for every training situation for you to understand the reasoning behind the lessons.
Forget everything you know about boxing and come here and he will teach you every little detail from scratch

"A real boxing course "
You will have a real boxing course highly concentrated on techniques. It is very beneficial for those who want to bring their boxing to perfection. I personally got many useful information especially on how to consume less power and have more efficiency.

"2 Weeks of Boxing in Kiev"
When arriving to Kiev I was picked up by trainer Dmitry and one of his student's. The next day I was given a walking tour of the city, they showed me restaurants to eat, setting up my phone etc they went the extra mile to make sure I was well taken care of and accommodated. For the boxing, we trained twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. Dmitry has a lifetime of boxing knowledge/experience, he is patient, attentive and passionate. Our sessions were filmed on my phone so I still go back to them to work on perfecting what I learned. Usually we worked in the morning 1 on 1 and in the evening I would work with his other students (putting the technique I learned in the morning to work). I was provided a sparring partner my weight and experience. My overall experience was very positive and I left Kiev with a new and much better understanding of boxing. I would confidently recommend this program to anyone at any level who is serious about boxing.
