Interested in one of the sports we have, but have no experience yet? Throughout the year we'll host beginner courses for all of our sports. Beginner courses allow you to try out whichever sport you like, at a very approachable level. However, if the sport you want to try isn't being taught in a beginners course at the moment, you can always join our regular classes for a try-out.
Starting Q3 - that's February 3rd 2020 - we host two beginners courses simultaneously. Every Tuesday, from 18:00 until 19:30, there is a BJJ beginner course. Every Thurday, from 20:00 until 21:30, there is a judo beginners course. Both courses are free to participate, and take ten weeks. During these ten weeks you'll learn (a part of) the basics of the respective martial art. For both courses regular sportsclothing is sufficient, however if you have a gi you're encouraged to bring it with you.
During the BJJ beginners course you'll learn basic techniques like falling safely, several ways to take someone to the ground, how to control someone on the ground, and eventually submissions like chokes and joint-locks. Besides all this you'll also learn how to defend against these techniques. At the end of the course you have the option to get your BJJ whitebelt, Samourais membership, and a Samourais shirt with a discount
During the judo beginners course you'll learn how to fall safely, several basic throws, pins, and joint-locks. At the end of the course you have the possibility of trying out for your yellow belt. After the beginners-course you have the option to get membership, a Samourais shirt, and a yellow belt, with a discount. If you're looking for info about the judo beginnerscourse we have the Judo beginners course flyer, which is slightly outdated, but the techniques shown in the flyer are a good indication of what you'll learn during the course.
You can contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to enroll for a beginners course, but also if you have some other questions.
