    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.

    Training

    • This efficient method of self defence is not based on strength but on understanding the dynamics of balance, physiology and body movements.
    • It is a training system for creating balance between mind and body. To accomplish this Shorinji kempo uses two training methods: meditation (good posture, calm and relaxed breathing) and martial training (improving self-confidence and determination).
    • It is a versatile and good physical exercise.

    Wear en gear

     

    Sports wear meets the requirements for the first (free trail) training. After that, a Shorinji kempo dogi is preferred. These are for sale from the teacher.

    Instructors

    Trainings are given by Instructor Jaap Stahlie (3rd Dan), Assistant Instructor Dennis Klonnek (2nd Dan) and the support of other Shorinji kempo dan kenshi.
