Boxing club Amaron does not prepare people for boxing competitions!
Boxing club Amaron relies on a specially developed method, that has evolved based on the trainer’s experience during the past 15 years, where the trainees, who do not have any previous boxing experience could reach 75% of their boxing potential, if they come to training three times a week for 6 consecutive months. The time during one training session is divided into three equal parts: warm up, mitts training and sparring.
Iliya Kazepov started his boxing training in 1983, when he is 13 years old. Since then he has been actively competing and consequently started box training activity. The trainer has 105 amateur box matches in his career, 5 professional box matches, 10 kick box matches, and has been participant in the first MMA tournament organized in Bulgaria in Hall 1 of NDK.
Regular training hours are as follows:
- Monday and Wednesday start from 20.30
- Tuesday (women only), Thursday (women only), and Friday start from 20.00
- During the whole week, excluding Saturday and Sunday there are morning training sessions (end time is 11.00); the start of the morning session should be prearranged with the trainer by calling on the number provided in the Contacts section.

How much will it cost me?

Should I buy myself boxing gloves, mouthguard, and handwraps before starting training?
No. It is only necessary to have training shoes, as well as T-shirt and shorts. During the first sessions you will be provided with boxing gloves, as well as guidance on what you need to buy if you decide to continue with the training.
What is the earliest time I can come for a boxing training?
Please contact the phone number provided in Contacts. You could arrange for an early hour any day of the week including the weekend. The start of the morning training should be prearranged as it might change; however, the latest end time for morning training is 11.00 o’clock.
How does a standard training session look like?
The box training starts with a warm up of approximately 20 minutes, which is the same for all independent of their level. There follows a training in specific punches combinations by twos in order to further warm up before the sparring. The third part of the training is sparring with specific instructions from the training for each individual. During the sparring the trainer is looking at the movements of each person and interrupts by giving directions so that the correct boxing body movements are learnt in the right way. The total during is one hour, and it is very intense.
I would like to be the only one to throw the punches during sparring. Is that possible?
Yes. This is a special service that we offer to clients, who would like “to beat somebody” without being hit. This is a very popular recently offered service not only in the East, but the West as well. The trainer has developed a special technique, in order to respond to this particular demand. The appointment for such session is done on the phone given in Contacts.
Is boxing only for men?
Definitely not! During boxing training, women experience an additional complex of body exercises, which serves for a better looking body.
Are there boxing sessions only for women?
No. All participants train together. After warm up the trainees are separated by men and women. If there is no extra woman partner then the trainer himself steps in to partner.
Is there boxing training only for children?
No. All participants train together. The absolute minimum age for children is 8 years, but 12 years of age is the recommended start time for training in boxing. The type of training is negotiated with the parents individually for each child.
Is there training schedule for beginners?
No. All participants train together independent of the experience they have. The trainer instructs each participants according to his/her level.
I do not feel self confident and I feel uncomfortable just by thinking to start boxing training!
Please, do not let such thoughts stand in your way. Every person who has trained boxing felt uneasy with oneself at a given moment in time. Truth is that everyone admits the reward of making the first step. In our case, the first step is just to give a phone call on the number published in Contacts.
May I come with a sparring partner?
Sure you can. If you prefer to practice sparring only with someone you know, then there is no problem for you to come together.
May I train in order to compete?
Boxing club “Amaron” does not aim to prepare boxers for competitions. If you already practice amateur or professional boxing you could simply drop by and have a good sparring with the trainer.
May I not participate in the sparring training?
Yes. For those who wish to make use of the boxing training only for fitness purposes there are trainings that do not include full contact and are fit for this specific purpose.
I do not like the idea of being hit. May I not participate in sparring?
The sparring is not compulsory so do not feel unease. However, have in mind that the trainer has devised three types of sparring: full contact, without contact and only body contact (without hitting the head). That way it turns out that all participants would like to experience the sparring as well since it is an essential part of the boxing training.
How do I set a private appointment?
This is easy. Just make a call to the number provided in Contacts.
Do I have the necessary physical strength to start boxing training?
Do not be disturbed by that thought! The only precondition required for anyone independent of body strength or gender is to give the best of oneself during the training.
If I train body building would this help me in boxing?
No, on the contrary. In fact the most successful boxers have long muscles that are trained for endurance. Muscles that are purposefully trained would be an obstacle for throwing heavy punches and you may not last long enough to finish the first round.
