Our training schedule has been updated. MMA is now part of the program and the times and locations of other trainings have changed. Check it out, click here.
A lot of our members were asking us for it and now it is finally there, we ordered our brand new sport shirts! Our logo is printed on both the front- and backside of the shirts, the WUR logo is printed on the sleeve. So if you want to proudly show the whole world that you are one of us (or just need a new sport shirt), the shirts are now available for 17 euros each. You can order a shirt by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us that you want to order the shirt and which size.
Available sizes: S-M-L-XL
Material: 100% Polyester
Weight: 140 grams/m2
During the Summer Holidays Frank will give boxing lessons on Monday and Thursday from 19:30 to 21:30. The rest of our trainers will have a well earned holiday, so no other Martial arts training will be given during the SUmmer Holidays. From September onward you can enjoy our regular training schedule again!
After some serious buttkicking in Enschede, it became clear to me: these guys are going to bring home some precious metal discs from Groningen. Team De Grondleggers consists of boxers Axel, Dylan and Rob. They are to defend the pride of Wageningen this Sunday. It will be sensational, I promise you that. If Wageningen University fails at the GNSK, it will definitely not be due to De Grondleggers. You should be there. Period. Even if you hate boxing. At least find the heart to support our boys.
For those less informed: I am talking about Mixed Martial Arts. This is a relatively new fighting method, which was developed as a consequence of ever popular tournaments for fighters of any school. MMA focuses on fairly basic techniques from many different martial arts, combining them into a fighting system that prepares its practitioner for a wide variety of skilled opponents. Common techniques are punches and kicks, takedowns, throws, arm- and leglocks and chokes, not to forget a variety of situation-specific counters and escapes.
The lessons will be taught by Arjen Heijnekamp, who also teaches jiu-jitsu on Tuesdays. You still have to wait for a short bit before we begin, though. As soon as the new sports hall is opened (which should be soon, just like last year), you can take part in the action. We start out with a beginners’ course, but beginners are still welcome throughout the whole year. Keep an eye on the training schedule, it will be updated as soon as we know more about the exact starting date!
