Would you like to try Thai boxing? CrossFit? Learn about the human body and get your preconceptions about martial arts shattered? The Stockholm’s greatest martial arts club Slagskeppet is now offering all students free access to their gym as well their sessions in CrossFit during sports day.

But! Slagskeppet also want to show us students how fun martial arts is so besides free access to their gym and sessions they’re also offering us a unique private session in thai boxing especially designed for us at KI with their head coach in thai boxing Peter Lööf, Sweden’s foremost thai boxing trainer with 40 years of experience in martial arts both as an active athlete as well as a trainer. Peter has a unique sense for the biomechanics of the human body and over 30 years of experience when it comes to treatment and rehabilitation of exercise-induced injuries and will also go through biomechanics with us during the session.

HOW FUN DOES THAT SOUND? So much fun! So, bring all of your friends and come to Slagskeppet for two hours of endorphin raising, ass-kicking exercise where you can take out all of your aggressions over school! Two birds with one stone! Everyone is welcome, from beginners who’ve never tried thai boxing before to pros, Slagskeppet will cater the session to your abilities!
