The Spark7 Slam Tour paid a visit to the HAK / HTL in Eisenstadt. Nicole Trimmel and Christoph Braunrath from KBC-Rohrbach presented kickboxing to the students.
Spark 7 SLAM stands for Sport, Language, Action & Multimedia. Within the initiative “Fit für Österreich† this tour is supported by ASVÖ, ASKÖ and Sportunion and is touring through Austria. Sport and multi-sportive workshops are held. Coach Renaldo O`Neal, a former basketball player, created the “move and groove workshop†. This concept should animate young people for doing sports. A positive feeling through motions should be the result.
The Spark 7 Slam tour co-operates with local clubs and athletes and offers them possibilities to represent their sports. Therefore Nicole Trimmel, the four-time World Champion in kickboxing, and the national kickboxing team’s coach Christoph Braunrath took the opportunity to do workshops with young students. Nicole Trimmel, a former student of the HAK Eisenstadt, showed and taught basic techniques in kickboxing. At the end the two kickboxers also gave a special show act for the students. “It was very funny to teach in my old school where I have spent five years. The aim was to motivate young people. It does not really matter if they start with kickboxing or with some other sports, but we would be glad to welcome some new students at our club†, said Nicole Trimmel.
