OUT*side Program

As part of our project, OUT*side – movement and sport for trans*, inter*, non-binary folks and women* friends, we worked together with partners TriQ, Gladt e.V. and Sonntags-Club to organize a range of free health-related activities and workshops on empowerment through movement at locations throughout Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg in 2017. This project is sponsored by the district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg's planning and coordination department for health.

Training sessions are open to people of all levels of fitness, free of charge and not bound to a club. As of September 2018, all of our coaches are trans*, inter* and/or non-binary.

Autumn-Program 2019:

GRAPPLING WORKSHOP (basics)

(for trans*, inter*, and non-binary folks and their women* friends)
Sunday, 22 September, 20 October, 10 Novermber and 8 december 2019
Time: 12 pm - 2:30 pm  
Place: Gym Urbanstr. 166 (22.09.) / Hector-Peterson-Schule, Tempelhofer Ufer 15, 10963 Berlin (20.10.2019, 10.11.2019 and 08.12.2019)
Language: German

I would like to provide you with an introduction to the sport, which is strongly focused on relaxation, technique, and tactics. I want to teach you the basics of grappling, and the workshop is primarily adressed to beginners and participants with limited experience in grappling. In the first part of the workshop we will start with warmup and coordination exercises to familiarize ourselves with how to move on the ground. In the second part we will focus on basic grappling positions, including how to achieve these positions and how to break our opponent's grip. We will be completing these exercises together with partners. Depending on the group, we will also offer the opportunity for interested participants to engage in a round of casual sparring at the end of the training session.

This is an ongoing workshop in which different positions and aspects of ground fighting are taught each time. It is therefore worthwhile to take part in all appointments, but those who don't want to or can't are still welcome every time. So grab a friend and sign up or come alone. I am looking forward to you

So come and sign up or grab a friend and register together. I'm looking forward to working with you!

HIKING DAY

(for trans*, inter*, and non-binary folks and their women* friends)

Sunday, 13.10.19 (2 more Hiking days are planned)
Time: 12-2:30 pm
Place: Urbanstraße 166
Language: German

The hiking project "Fließe" leads us to the Barnimer Land. There we will get to know some of the most beautiful rivers and learn something about the widely ramified water system in our region as well as about its origin about 12000 years ago. My goal is to explore all the hidden scenic beauties that lie far away from the main traffic routes and are therefore often overlooked.

 

The first hike starts in Melchow, where the regional train will take us. First we walk through a forest towards Schönholz, cross the village and soon reach the eastern Nonnenfließ. From there an idyllic hiking trail leads parallel to the brook, surrounded by a beautiful beech forest. A comfortable resting place awaits us at Luisenkreuz. After our well-deserved rest, a forest path leads back to Schönholz and on to Melchow.

 

Coacher: Nora (65), Transwoman, active member of TransInterQueer e.V. For more than 10 years I have been travelling in Brandenburg and have got to know fascinating landscapes through my numerous hikes. I would like to pass on my rich knowledge and experience within the framework of a hiking group. I would like my fascination to be contagious.

Sunday, 13.10.19
