NOTICE TO ALL GYM/SCHOOL OWNERS/INSTRUCTORS: We are very happy to offer the facilities and services listed here to any instructor looking to put together a camp of their own. We would love to help you put together the best training camp possible for your students/fighters. Please send us a message via our contact us page for any enquiries and questions.

This unique package is a superb training experience for any student of Martial Arts. In our small but professional venue you will experience an amazing week of focused and scheduled mixed martial arts fitness training. Led by experienced instructors, participants will be made welcome from the moment they arrive, and will embark on an intense, week long journey to physical and mental mastery and martial discipline.

The week will be set up as a preparation camp would be, prior to a competition or fight, focusing on basic skill mastery and conditioning. Every day will involve a disciplined regime of progressive training, both fitness, technique, and of course environmental cross training; making maximum use of the stunning mountain environment to create unique physical and mental challenges. Dietary requirements are met and all meals are provided (for a sample menu plan, please click on the link here).


The gym environment will be used every day, utilising all the space for sparring and specific training, but also making use of equipment such as battle ropes, tyres, heavy bags, weights, sandbags, thai pads, rowing machines and more. Post training, participants will be able to use the sauna and cold shower facilities to purge lactic acid from their muscles, and emerge revitalised and refreshed, ready for the next day of training. Participants will also have the chance to take part in other physical activities to supplement the main training such as mountain biking and white water rafting.

In addition to the excellent martial and physical training involved, numerous seminars will take place over the course of the week, covering topics useful for the aspiring athlete such as goal setting and personal psychological performance. These skills are vital to achieving mastery in any area of life and provide a positive backdrop and backbone to the week long programme.

Throughout the week there will be plenty of opportunity to relax and socialise also, with a spa day trip to a local aqua park serving as a great break in the schedule. To culminate the week, we climax with a guided ascent of one of the highest peaks in the Tatras; Rysy. This will act as the major achievement marker for the week; after an excellent week of development and training, participants will feel a total sense of achievement as they conquer a mountain a third the height of Mt Everest.

The program is open to students of all abilities and styles but a reasonable level of fitness is required to get the most from the program, although anyone who's fitness leaves something to be desired will definitely benefit from the training and be fully supported. Styles focused on are Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai boxing, Sambo and submission wrestling, with emphasis on conditioning, basic technique drilling, pressure testing and controlled sparring.
