Let's kick some ass!
Get away from the daily grind and join us in the sandstone landscapes of Sachsische Schweiz: Kickass Camp is coming back in 2022! It's a 5-day, 4-night stay in the beautiful, newly renovated Grundmühle Guesthouse in the middle of nature, with fresh meals cooked daily, plus intensive martial arts training with an awesome group of girls! Boxing, Kickboxing, and Muay Thai - for women, by women. Wrap your hands, grab your gloves, and get your shinguards on: You're in for some next level butt-kicking.
Our daily program starts with a key element that every great fighter needs: a clear mind. Mindfulness & breathing are the early morning focus with a jog outdoors in nature, tuning into your breath as you take in the fresh forest air. Head back to the accommodation afterwards for a steamy cup of coffee and a hearty breakfast. Ready to take on the day!
Full on oxygen and energy, it’s time to train like a warrior. Day 1 will challenge you with an upper body focus on Boxing in the AM to fire up your shoulders. Recover during lunch break, so that you’re ready for the lethal “weapons” of Muay Thai in the afternoon. Pace yourself and test your stamina!
Day 2 focuses on Kickboxing in the morning to put all the strikes in your toolbox together. Fuel up on healthy carbs and protein at the lunch station so that you’re ready for the afternoon fun: the second round of Muay Thai training! And another highlight: thanks to the smaller capacity of this camp, each participant gets a Personal Training Sesh to focus on your individual strengths and needs!
On the third day, you'll get a chance to test out all your combos and techniques in Combo & Sparring Challenges! And don't fret - we always take your level and experience into consideration. We end each training day with Martial Arts Stretching to cool down, and a guided Meditation for calming the mind, regulating the breath, and resetting the nervous system. After you freshen up from training, our kitchen crew will greet you with a delicious and nutritious 3-course meal for dinner.
For the Evening Program, you can relax around a summer bonfire or enjoy a chill game night before tucking in for a well-earned sleep.
Who can join?
Women of all backgrounds are welcome to join our bootcamp! The Kickass Camp focuses on intensive martial arts training. Where necessary, we offer two program levels in the camp: one for complete beginners, and one for experienced martial artists. So prior martial arts experience is not a requirement. It's important to us that we not only support women who are already martial artists, but also those who are just starting their Martial Arts journey! Our chinkilla team is international - we speak English, German, and Arabic. *Under 16's may attend with parental permission.
The beautiful, newly-renovated Grundmühle Farmhouse will be our forest home in Sachsiche Schweiz. Every residential unit is equipped with its own modern shower and toilet: no lines at the communal bathroom here! The former stable of the farmhouse was remodeled into a comfy common room, and there's also a spacious outdoor area that can be used for working out, or just relaxing by the campfire in the evening.
The house is nestled in the heart of the forest, with hiking trails and climbing peaks in the area, as well as the Elbe River and Sandstone Mountains within driving distance. Our recommendation: book an extra night or two in the area to explore the natural surroundings!
Our daily meals are prepared by our very own chinkilla team: our nutrition-conscious kitchen crew has experience and competence in cooking delicious healthy meals with fresh vegan and vegetarian ingredients. We also adjust to your allergies and food intolerances: just let us know in the sign up form.
Each day at Kickass Camp starts with a balanced breakfast - wholegrain bread, rolls, vegan spreads, muesli and different types of yogurt (almond, soy). You’ll also find fresh fruit for making your own smoothies - vegan protein powder included. After the first training session, head over to the sandwich and snack bar for a light lunch to fuel you through the afternoon. After the training day ends, your warm-cooked dinner consisting of three courses awaits you - tuck in!
How do I get to the camp?
You can either take the train (to Bad Schandau, where we can pick you up) or come directly by car.* Arrival begins at 4pm. Our friendly team will show you to your room so you can get settled in and freshen up before dinner and meet & greet! * We're happy to help you find a carpool option with other participants, just let us know!
Address: Ferienhof Grundmühle, Schandauer Str. 24, 01848 Hohnstein
How does this camp differ from the others?
The Kickass Camp is our most martial arts focused bootcamp (there is no self-defense). Each participant receives a personal training session, which we do not offer in other camps. The house we rent in Sachsische Schweiz has a higher cost and standard than our other accommodations, due to a fresh renovation: each room has a private bathroom and shower.
What's the cancellation policy?
We can only accept a cancellation on your part if you have found a replacement participant to take your place. To be on the safe side, we strongly encourage you to take out your own travel insurance that will cover cancellations for personal or health reasons (e.g., ADAC).
