Aditya:

"Whatever expectations you have going in, the retreat will surely surpass them. This has been one of the most enriching experiences of my life! I got better at Muay Thai, saw a beautiful new country and made life long friends from all over the world who share a similar mindset to me. Back home, not many people train and I've always felt Muay Thai was a solo journey I was on. It was an absolute pleasure to find people to share the journey with. The retreat was easily one of the best things I've ever done and the only thing I would change is the fact that it had to end."


Zack:

"I was so glad I was able to attend the first Greece retreat. The trip was well planned and executed from training, accommodations, activities, food and beaches. Sean, Jerry, Liz, Andreas and the resort staff went above and beyond. This was by far an absolutely incredible trip, and will definitely be attending again!"


Lulu:

"Sean, Liz and Jerry made this trip spectacular from start to finish. The location and logistics couldn't have been more delightful, the hotel was fantastic and a great social environment. The gym and training by Sean was great, his patience and passion for the sport comes across and he's truly inspirational to learn from - plus the sessions were both challenging but great fun. All the restaurants were spot on and we were well fed with healthy and traditional local food. The people on the trip were some of the most like-minded wonderful people I've ever met and the trip went above all expectations. I look forward to the tours of 2019!"


Rob:

"It's been everything I thought it would be and MORE."
