Brazilian jiu jitsu at the USC: how does it work?

With a BJJ membership you take trainings at your level. The course is an ideal beginning if you have only little BJJ experience. We stongly recommend to first take the course before you join the MMA and BJJ trainings.

BJJ/MMA Course

  • Course is 9 classes of 1 hour.
  • Suitable for everyone, men and women, young and old.
  • You learn the basic techniques and arm bars known in MMA and BJJ.
  • You tackle triangles, kimuras, armbars, control positions, sweeps and escapes.
  • During this course there is no sparring. We dedicate the full hour to learn techniques for a smooth transfer to the regular trainings.


  • Every week there are 2 trainings of 75 minutes.
  • You can take these trainings with your BJJ- or passe-partout membership.
  • Beginners and advanced train at the same time.
  • You can join the Brazilian jiu jitsu trainings year through.
  • You are welcome to do a trial training. Just ask at the front desk of sportcentrum Universum before the training starts.
  • With your membership you can also join the circuit training for combat sportsmen and the free training hours in the dojo. Both are available in sportcentrum Universum.
  • You can choose between a 3, 6 or 12 month membership.

Facebook group BJJ

Wear and gear

  • For the first (trial) training loose sports wear will do.
  • After that a kimono/gi is obligatory. A regular judo suit is fine. Judo/jiu jitsu suits are for sale at the sports desk.
