Please always bring…
…a towel and a bottle of water to all classes. You can borrow gloves from the gym to start with, but if you intend to stay on we would ask you to buy your own equipment.
Muay Thai Boxing

This class focuses on the principal defense and offense boxing techniques and boxing counters. Interval and circuit training, partner exercises, weights and bag/padwork as well as shadow boxing and supervised light sparring will improve your reflexes, your speed, strength, stamina and flexibility of arms and legs alike.

Muay Thai- / Kickboxing Fitness and Conditioning
The concept of our Fitness and Conditioning class was developed by Claudia Fingerhut of Lowkick Berlin e.V. It combines classic fitness training with Thai – and Kickboxing elements.
The first 45 minutes consist of a warm-up, strengthening exercises and stretching. You are free to leave after the first half. The second half is a made up as a conditioning circuit with lots of boxing and kicking stations.
Conditioning classes are great preparation for technical classes as we build up the muscles we need to protect the body from injuries. And we also boost our condition, coordination, reflexes and speed/reaction time. If you’re mainly interested in getting fit and you’re looking for an interesting workout, you’re spot on here too.
Muay Thai Technical Class
Free trial every 1st Tuesday / 1st Thursday of the month
There’s always something new to learn in Thai Boxing! It’s an incredibly versatile sport – and the devil is in the detail. Punches, kicks, knees and elbows, varying your distances to your partner / opponent, speed and action – reaction are only some of the aspects of Muay Thai.
Our “Muay Thai Technical Class / Beginners” is about the basics. How to move in Thaiboxing, how to stand right (your “stance”), how to punch & kick and how to defend yourself against thoses punches & kicks. This will take some time- Muay Thai is not a sport you can master in a few days.
We train barefooted and mainly wearing guards (mouth, shin, etc.) At the beginning you will be ok without own equipment, but if you are planning to stay on buying your own does make sense.
Muay Thai Technical Class Intermediate
Level: General / Intermediate
Requirements: Basic techniques in Muay Thai
For this class you should be confident in all the basic offensive & defensive techniques and know how to hold pads. Open to intermediate and advanced trainees.
The course is about the basics of Thaiboxing and about improving your technique. It is about working various distances, footwork and tactics. We will be practising combos with a partner or with pads, clinching and sparring.
Previous sparring experience is not required.
Knowledge of basic Muay Thai techniques is required to join this class
This is a mixed conditioning and technical class. An intense warm-up is followed by combos, using Thai kick pads and focus mitts. The aim is to not only get in a good workout, but also perfect your technique and learn how to hold pads correctly. The class ends with strenthening exercises and stretching.
Muay Thai Technical Class Advanced
Please do not attend this class of your own accord. Minimum previous training recquired is 1-2 years as well as a coach’s recommendation. Please ask a coach if you can attend or wait until a coach refers you to this class of their own accord.
This class is for people who know how to defend themselves against punches and kicks and are confident in offensive techniques. Please bring your own protective guard, hand wraps and gum shield.
The aim of the course is to improve your technique and tactics. Instructed sparring is part of every session. Albeit it is an advanced class we place great emphasis on the fact that everyone can train according to their own abilities.
Of course you can go barking mad if you like but it is also ok to train in a more relaxed way. It is paramount to us that we all look after each other – but also that everyone gets their do.

Muay Thai for Girls*, young Inter-, Trans- and Non-Binary (ages 12-17)
This course is about Muay Thai. “Muay Thai” is Thai for Thai boxing. In Thai boxing we’ll learn how to box, kick and knee. We will be training our sense of balance, coordinative skills, speed, power and stamina.
The course is challenging and sometimes strenuous, but it’s all about the fun!
Empowerment and Thai Boxing für Girls* (ages 9-12)
Our girls’* training is about…
…having fun exercising
…finding out what your strengths and weaknesses are …learning how to defend yourself
…being allowed to be loud
…testing your own limits (and those of others!) …showing how strong you are
These three things are important to us:
Fun & Games
We want all girls* to have fun and to enjoy exercising. So there will be lots of fun & games. And we don’t want to play against each other but to-gether!
Technique and Sports
We will teach you the basics of Thai Boxing, which will enhance your flexibility and allow you to use your strength and power. We will be boxing and kicking punching bags, jumping rope, toning muscles and stretching. You will really get your fix! All exercises with a partner will be in light contact, i.e. only kicking or boxing very lightly, so noone will get hurt.
Defense and Empowerment
We want all girls* to know their strength, believe in themselves and go through life with their heads held high! Sadly, girls* are often victims of assault. In the trainings we will therefore provide opportunities to talk about anger, fear, conflict and violence. Together we will learn to deal with these feelings and to defend ourselves. You will learn what your individual strengths and skills are and how to develop the defensive strategies that are best for you.
* The course is open to all people who identify as girls
