"Boxing camp with shahab "
Whouaa I don't know by what I should start!
Shahab is the Greatest coach I had so far! He s really focus of what is your type and always ready to show you new skills. He analyse your movements quickly and show you to be more efficient. His always want to push you to your limit. His training change totally every single session (location type of training, etc)
Shahab and is wife (We called her the queen Cathy) are very kind and generous people.
The food is the camp was incredible in the mountains. We had organic food and smoothie :)
The food in the hotel was ok.
Everyday shahab will take you (no obligation) to see some curiosity in the area. (Castle, mountains, museum, organic farm, etc.)
No doubts I will return at least next year if not before.

"Brilliantly crafted training in beautiful surroundings"
I’ve just got back from a week at Punchcamp Spain and I can’t recommend it highly enough! The training was challenging, incredibly varied and excellently crafted by Shahab who is a highly skilled trainer and practitioner. His 20 years+ experience, infectious energy, warmth and generosity made this a really special trip and has kickstarted my year off perfectly. We trained in a different location every day - from the beach, to the the mountain, in a local boxing gym and at the marina - so i was always kept on my toes and constantly challenged in new, fun and innovative ways. The mountain and beach locations were especially challenging but the beautiful surroundings (and hand picked fruit) were the perfect reward for the hard training. 4 days into my trip a group of pro boxers arrived and Shahab perfectly balanced the training so we could all work together. It was a great motivator and real learning experience to be around other fighters. We were also able to make some excursions to nearby beaches, national parks and towns which added brilliantly to the whole experience and was a great balance to the training. The accommodation on the beach was perfectly adequate and the ability to mix cooking (there were lots of supermarkets nearby) with the tasty catered meals at the hotel fitted well with the programme of training. As well as being an excellent coach Shahab and his family were brilliant hosts and made me feel truly welcome. I will definitely be back!

"Great place to train and get fit"
I liked training in the mountains and on the beach
from Austria, September 2017
Ich hatte diesen Urlaub alleine gebucht, ohne jegliche Erfahrung im Kampfsport (abgesehen von einigen Stunden im Fitnesscenter). Somit war es für mich ein Sprung ins kalte Wasser :) Gleich zu Beginn wurde ich von Kathi und Shahab mit einer Herzlichkeit empfangen, die man nicht oft erlebt. Sie zeigten Interesse an meiner Person und waren sehr um mein Wohlbefinden bemüht.
Das Training war zwar hart, Shahab erkannte jedoch die Grenzen und konnte sich auf die unterschiedlichen Levels einstellen und die Trainingseiheiten dementprechend variieren. Ich habe einiges Lernen können und würde jederzeit wieder kommen.
Das Camp in den Bergen hat nicht nur durch die Schönheit der Natur eine heilende Wirkung, man wird auch mit gesundem und köstlichem Essen verköstigt und lernt auch diesbezüglich viel dazu. Abgesehen von den sportlichen Aktivitäten werden sehr interessante Exkursionen angeboten, sowohl an der Küste als auch im Landesinneren. Eine tolle Erfahrung (sowohl sportlich als auch menschlich gesehen), die ich jedem empfehlen kann!!! Top!

"From unfit beginner to boxing lover"
I highly recommend the bootcamp since Shahab is an amazing instructor iper-passionate and with a contagious never-stand-still stitude to push beyond your limits. I am seriously considering to come back again since it is in sunny spain which takes only couple of hours of flight which was one of the big reason to chose it in the first place (instead of wasting 2/4 days of my hard earn vacation travelling)
My biggest concern of doing the camp was that I would get injured and stop since since I was 6 years without doing any physical exercise.
The trainings were tough even for other people more fit than me. Still I was determined to finish them all. The training were always varying which avoided to be boring/repetitive.
I have learned a great deal on boxing and thai box. I was a bit overweight but I was able to overachieve my goals in terms of being fit and boxing experience. I feel to be a new person. Furthermore being on the sunny spain I was also able to get a nice tan. The weather has been fantastic.
At the begining I was skeptical of the altitude/mountain training. Though i actually liked it a lot. Being on the mountain allow to have a greater focus and less distractions.
Shahab was super helpful and he really put all of himself into running the camp inventing new exercises and excursions. I loved the waterfall excursion. He is also fluent in english, spanish and german.

Shahab is not only the best Trainer i have ever had but he is also a good person, full of passion and good humor: he is fully dedicated to make you feel good and get the best out of you. Kathy and all Shahab's Family are beautiful people. I will be for ever thankful for this enriching experience!

"Super kick/thai boxing training in Spain!"
I had booked an 8 days (2 sessions daily) with punchcamp spain in the beginning of May. Shahab is the coach. The training with Shahab was superb! Shahab has a huge amount of knowledge about martial arts. Shahab used the first day to check my abilities, allowing him to make a program fit for me for the rest of the stay. The session perfectly changed between conditioning, power and technique training. Every session was different, which for a fighter is very good, because he/she has to adapt to what's coming. This element of surprise is very motivation and keeps every session interesting.
I traveled to the punchcamp with a 10 months baby. during every session Shahab wife Katy, took care of my baby while I was training. I could not ask for a better babysitter then Katy. Whether it was an early session in the morning or at night, she kept my daughter happy, while I could focus 100% on my training.
I will come back and bring more fighters!
Had a great time with Katy and Shabs on this training holiday. Being picked up from the airport was a great touch, taking out any stress of finding the hotel etc after a long flight. The training began outside on allies fantastic coastline and continued either in their gym space or in surrounding beautiful countryside. I have no idea where Shabs's energy comes from but it is infectious and somehow he brings every last inch of effort out of you. I will certainly recommend this holiday to fellow friends, male and female. I will visit the great Katy and Shabs again real soon. Your new friend, Vanessa :)
