Muay Thai and Self Defence

In accordance with the different age groups we will be mainly focusing on Muay Thai techniques or learn to set our own boundaries and get to know our own strength in a playful way.

We all…
…learn the basic Muay Thai techniques (kicks, punches, stance) …practice Self Defence in body and voice
…train our reaction and coordination skills
…get to know our strengths, weaknesses and limitations
…work off some energy!
All this we do TOGETHER and not against each other. Respect is extremely important to us.

Please bring gym clothes and a bottle of water. You will not need any trainers.

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 part consist of a warm-up, strengthening exercises and stretching. The second half is 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.

Self-assertion & self-defense training at Sidekick Leipzig e.V.
for MINT* from 12-18 years
[MINT* [german] stands for girls, inter*, non-binary and trans* children and youth]

Are you familiar with this?
Annoying looks, stupid remarks, “well-meant compliments”, inappropriate touches and much more.
Don’t want to get dragged down by it anymore?
Join our 6-week long self-assertion and self-defense course.

Learn to…
… trust your gut instead of doubting it.
… set limits instead of enduring situations.
… say no and to react to stupid remarks instead of going home dejected.
… how to connect with others who are experiencing similar things.

In the course there will be space for…
… exchange about experienced discrimination.
… mutual support.
… fun and movement.

Everything is possible, but nothing is necessary!
Already during the course you learn to respect your own limits and to articulate your needs. You decide how much you want to share, which exercise you want to participate in, what is too much for you and when it is time for a break.
How? The course includes exercises in groups, in pairs and alone.
What? Conversations, role plays, body work (e.g. perception exercises), liberation techniques, movement and much more.

The course will take place from 12.5.-23.6.22 (six times) always on thursdays from 5-6.30pm at Sidekick.
Places: 15 participants
Registration via mail to: mint @ sidekick-leipzig.org
