Jiu jitsu at the USC: how does it work?

  • There are 2 trainings, 75 minutes each.
  • You can take these trainings with your jiu jitsu- or passe-partout membership.
  • Beginners and advanced train together.
  • Beginners learn the basic techniques: breaking a fall, defending, knocks, blows and kicks (karate), throws (judo) and control techniques (strangleholds and locking).
  • Advanced classes are for participants holding the 4th kyu (yellow belt). You will focus on kata’s, combinations and plural principles, competition forms.
  • 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 join the trainings all year through.
  • You are always welcome to try out jiu jitsu. For this please turn to our front desk.
  • You can choose between a 3, 6 or 12 month membership.
