Making a reservation and checking in

  • You need a reservation for every visit to USC.
  • Book a training using the booking button above or via this 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.
