About us

Helsinki Thaiboxing Club ry – HTBC is an athletic club established in 1989 and specialized in thaiboxing. We are a member of the Finnish Muay Thai association.

HTBC’s own gym is centrally located in the district of Kallio in Helsinki and easily accessible by public transport. The 500m2 gym offers spacious changing rooms and showers, a boxing ring, a padded flooring for training, kicking pads, punching bags, punching mitts, kettlebells, weight plates and dumbbells – anything you might need for a diverse and hard practice, whether you were a combat professional or a beginner.

The club has a long history in the Finnish thaiboxing scene and its development. Over the years HTBC has produced top-level competitors both nationally and internationally. The club may be regarded as Finland’s most successful thai boxing club of all times.

Above all, we offer opportunities for amateurs to practice thaiboxing in the guidance of top coaches. The goal of HTBC is to offer its members of all levels as much guided practice as possible. This is why HTBC offers training seven days a week – a service no other club in Finland offers.

All of our coaches speak English and our members include many non-Finnish speakers.

If you have questions concerning our club or its membership, please contact us by phone 040-5286932 or by e-mail info@htbc.fi. We are glad to answer any questions you might have!
