    • Book a training in the timetable above or on the martial arts page.
    • 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)!
    • 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.

    Cancelling and no show fee

    Booked a class, but can’t make it? Please cancel in advance.

    • 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.

    What do you learn from it?

    At taekwondo, self-defence is the most important aspect. Besides practicing your technique (punching and kicking), we’ll also focus on:

    • concentration;
    • discipline;
    • and stamina.

    Get familiar with the sport, develop yourself at your own pace, and gain control over your body & mind.


    The goal of taekwondo is taking down your opponent as quick as possible and with a minimum amount of physical contact. And developing yourself is an imporant aspect too.

    Join the training sessions & push your limits!
