Jiu Jitsu at the USC

In Jiu Jitsu, we learn to win a physical confrontation with a larger and/or stronger opponent by using learned skills and techniques. This allows us to overcome the greater strength of the opponent. In many situations, we also use the strength and movement of our attacker to neutralize them. A comprehensive definition of Jiu Jitsu is difficult to formulate. Although Jiu Jitsu is focused on self-defense, it also incorporates other aspects. For example, modern Jiu Jitsu includes various forms of competition.

At the USC, a modern form of Jiu Jitsu is taught, emphasizing self-defense and all-round martial arts skills relevant in today's society. It's an effective and versatile sport that has continuously evolved influenced by other martial arts. Jiu Jitsu is suitable for everyone, regardless of experience or talent, and you can start classes at any time during the season. Beginners are welcome to join the beginner classes, which are conducted in English unless everyone is proficient in Dutch.
