Type: Combat sports, Passe-partout


The nunchaku is a weapon with a link to your past: whether you’ve watched too many ninja turtles or imitated Bruce Lee with two sticks connected with a shoelace. Nunchaku-do, however, is one of the youngest combat sports, and currently perhaps the fastest!

Wear and gear

For this training you just need some sweat pants and a short sleeve t-shirt. Men are advised to wear a toque. During the first training sessions you can borrow a nunchaku. You can also buy your own for €22,-. Ask your instructor.

USC instructor

The instructor for nunchaku is Hannah Jalink (3rd dan). She became 2-fold World Champion in 2018. Check out this footage of her winning the kata blackbelts. When she got a black belt in 2011, she decided to start teaching nunchaku. Meanwhile, Hannah has won multiple WK, European – and national titles. She is the best female nunchakuka of the moment.


Nunchaku-do at USC offers you the opportunity of measuring your skills against an opponent during tournaments. Tournaments include kumite (one-on-one fight), kata (form) and freestyle (demonstration with tricks). Some of the students at USC compete on national level, so there is always a possibility to continue learning. Is competition not really your thing? Recreational members are also more than welcome!


Are you a sports fanatic? Are you interested in various sports? The USC passe-partout is the right thing for you! This membership comprises a whole lot of different sports. Nunchaku is part of the passe-partout.
