The kid’s class trains twice per week and anyone can join in. Training is for both girls and boys. We are naturalizing focus on Muay Thai training, but we also allow time for play and have small competitions during training. We start with a warm up, this is important to avoid injury. Different activities and exercises are used during the warm up and vary from session to session. For example, a game of tag, dodge ball, or competitions where teams have to do different physical exercises. Circuit training can also be a part of warm up, an example of these exercises are sit-ups, skipping, or kicking and punching a sand bag. Every station has a new exercise. When you start Muay Thai training there will be a lot of technique you have to learn. You will learn how to punch and kick the correctly. The coach will hold two pads and you punch and kick the pads, that way no one will get hurt. The coach will then teach you different combinations. You will learn it all from scratch building up your skills. We are training as a team and yet individually as we build on your personal physique & experience from other sports etc. In time, you will be put together in pairs, at this time you will hold pads for each other. You don’t have to spar during training, it is absolutely optional. Those who don’t want to spar just keep on training and developing their technique’s.Sparring is a kind of match. You don’t punch and kick hard and it demands that you have learned a lot of technique and control. Sparing will always be with the coach. Once all the necessary technique and control has been learnt members are able to spar with each other at specific times during the class. Necessary equipment if you want to spar: shin guards, chest guards and gloves (you can borrow these from the gym).

Muay Thai is for both people looking to get fit or those wanting to spar during classes. Your age, gender and shape is irrelevant. Only you determine how hard and how often you want to train. No one is forced into actions or training they are not comfortable with. If you want to lose weight or just build muscles Muay Thai is a training that will give your whole body a work out. You are training on a team but the training is individually based on your physique and previous skills you may have. Everyone can train together. From beginners to skilled fighters. You start at the level you are comfortable with, and based on advice from your Coach.
The adult class is training 3 times a week but it is up to you how often you want to participate. Training start with a warm up that definitely isn’t boring. It is primary Circuit Training which is number of stations with different physical exercises. You will work at each station for about 1. min. and about 30 sec. brake where you move to the next station. When you have been through all the stations your whole body will be warmed up and ready for Muay Thai.
After the circle, we do about 5-7 min. of stretching. Following that we train Muay Thai and here you will learn a lot of technique & control. We train together in pair’s. One is holding pads (pads are used as target for hitting and kicking so no one gets hurt) and the other one has put on gloves. You will learn a lot of combinations where you hit, kick, use knee and elbows. The one holding the pads will help you to hit the pads, not him. After 5-7 minutes, you change places. Holding pads is not the same as taking a break. Holding pads is also very good training.

The coach will help you to find out how to control it.
