THE ART OF THE 8 LIMBS
MUAY THAI TRAINING IN BERLIN
WELCOME AT KARDIA MUAY THAI
What is Kardia Muay Thai
Kardia was formed in 2016 with the intention to form a club based on our own values.
Training together, means learning together and not fighting each other. To practice a martial art means first and foremost to learn about yourself. This learning covers much more than just body awareness and can be summarised in one word “empowerment”.
Kardia Muay Thai stands for solidarity and respect.

Yes we do. Regular training only happens in groups but if you are interested in 1:1 sessions please ask our coaches directly or send us an e-mail telling us what you are looking for.
In sparring we emphasise a focus on correct technique and performance. We encourage you to communicate with each other about power and intensity. Often we like to set certain tasks and do play sparring, a playful exchange of techniques. Of course in fight preparation we will adjust the intensity accordingly, these sparring sessions are reserved for advanced students and competitors.
You can find us at Lobeckstraße 36 in 10969, Berlin – Kreuzberg. From Lobeckstraße enter the tunnel with the big bicycle sign on top. Once in the backyard turn left immediately. The first door on the left on ground-floor is the entrance to our gym.
For your 2 trial classes you only need regular equipment and sportswear – no need for gloves yet. After your trials you will have to get your own equipment or rent equipment from us for a fee.
You need to bring sportswear without and metal parts on it. Bring bathing shoes or flip-flops that you don’t wear outside and a towel.
For your first visit make sure to arrive 10 minutes earlier. We will need the time to check you in, show you around and introduce you to the coach. Before the class starts make sure to remove all jewellery and piercings and to cut your nails short to avoid injuring yourself or your partner.
You get to participate in 2 trial classes for free. After those classes we are happy to advice you on the model that makes the most sense for you.
