Kidz / Youth

We not only offer training for grown-ups, but also for kids and young people (girls*, inter*, trans* and non-binary only). No trainings for kidz and youth in school holidays. Instead, there are sometimes workshops for kidz and youth in school holidays.

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 strenghts, 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.
