BASS & GUITAR REPAIR WORKSHOP
It’s never a bad idea to learn how to defend yourself. While kickboxing isn’t necessarily always the best option in any given situation (we recommend to combine it with other martial arts and practical self-defense classes like Krav Maga), it is a good start. In this workshop we’ll go over some basic, easy to learn and hard-hitting techniques to give you an idea of the empowering and straight-up fun sides of kickboxing. Gear will be provided and you can expect to join in safely whatever your level of fysical fitness. There will be no macho bullshit during and hopefully no more dry T-shirts after the session.
