    Kickboxing at USC

    You can do kickboxing at 3 USC locations with your martial arts membership.
    There are training sessions at different levels.
    With your martial arts membership you can also join the training sessions of all other martial arts.
    Corona proof: mandatory reservations and additional house rules.

    Which membership do you choose?

    MARTIAL ARTS YEAR (buy it here)
    you’re stuck with us for a year, after which you can cancel your membership monthly.

    MARTIAL ARTS FLEX (buy it here)
    a little more expensive but a lot more flexible, this membership can be canceled monthly from scratch.

    15x ENTRY (buy it here)
    15x entry to a sport in the passe-partout, to be used within 6 months.

    Making a reservation and checking in

    • Make a reservation in the timetable on the martial arts page.
    • You need a reservation for every visit to USC.
    • You can make a reservation 6 days in advance.
    • You can have 2 active reservations for the upcoming 6 days. But as soon as your first reservation is over, you can make a new one. So, you can work out more than twice a week (if there are free spots)!
    • The number of reservations is unlimited on the day itself.
    • You can enter half an hour before the start of the class/training you booked.
    • Make sure you’re on time, you’re disrupting the class/training when you’re too late.
    • You can choose how you enter USC: by using the finger scan or by using the My USC – mobile access app. Download the app: Android and iOS.
    • If you choose to use the My USC – mobile access app, you check in by scanning the QR code at the access gates. This way (or by using your finger scan) you’re automatically checked in.
    • Bring a towel and a filled water bottle.
    • Bring your own equipment as much as you can (like a mat, resistance bands and boxing gloves). Also for group classes and martial arts. The front desk offers a modest range of sports equipment and towels.
    • Read all reservation and house rules thoroughly before coming to USC! We can only keep things safe together.

    Cancelling and no show fee

    Booked a class, but can’t make it? Please cancel in advance: our capacity is limited!

    • Cancel up to one hour before the start of your reservation (but earlier is encouraged!).
    • Are you not cancelling (on time)? Then you risk a no show fee of €3,-.
    • Are you not paying the no show fee? In that case you can’t make a reservation/work out for 2 weeks.
    • Your no show fee doesn’t end up on the big USC company pile. Check in which sports goal we’re investing the no show fee income.

    Different levels

    In Universum you find trainings at different levels:

    • Beginners you’ll learn the basics of kickboxing in the training sessions for beginners.
    • Intermediate you get more technique training and more sparring.
    • Advanced you mainly get technique training and sparring. Competitive fighters join this training as well, but it stays fun!

    Wear and gear

    Gloves: in (kick)boxing at the USC we use gloves of 16 oz (women 14 oz.) for security reasons. After consultation with the instructor, 14 oz. (women 12 oz.) gloves may also be allowed. You need to purchase your own (inside-) gloves and shin guards. For the first (trial) class(es) and the beginners course you can lend these materials from the USC.

    Other materials: gloves, shin guards, mouth guards (compulsory during class) and protective cup (not compulsory) are available at the sports desk.
