The first time I was here I was shocked by how little I could do against the people that train here, while they were not even breaking a sweat. I knew I had to learn how to do that, and I have been training for half a year since then. I am very happy with the progress I could make here. This is a place to learn this sport as effectively as possible. No silly rules about not drinking water during training for example. Everybody is just here to learn. The owner is a cool guy and he wants to make sure you feel welcome. If you have not tried this before and want to check out if it is something for you, this is a great place to go to
" Very awesome gym. They provide instructions in English as well. Very open to non-Dutch people, and definitely safe for beginners and women as well. There is zero politics here and the atmosphere feels like family. It is definitely a very good return of my investment here, as over one year I have become much better athletically, stronger, faster and more confident in myself. I cannot recommend a better gym to start your martial arts journey "
As a complete beginner i felt immediately at home here. The higher belts are always willing to help if you have questions, and everyone is very respectful. Also, if you want to train every day, you can. They offer a wide variety of lessons all the time. I am really glad i started training BJJ, and even more so that i started my journey at Elevation.
" I trained there for almost a year now, and I highly recommend Elevation Sports. There are many classes held by different instructors allowing the study of Jiu-Jitsu under its many aspects: gi, no gi, fundamentals, advanced techniques, leg logs, take downs and all you need to learn. The scheduled is flexible, offering classes and open mats all week. The group is large and varied, but the psychology across all the people is healthy, making Elevation Sports a very happy environment while still being competitive and challenging. There is also always someone up for competitions. The facility is large and can host easily big groups. The mats are extremely clean and taken care on daily basis (by experience, not such a given). Showers and changing rooms are comfortable and extremely clean too. "
" Ondertussen train ik bijna een jaar bij Elevation Sports. Vanaf het begin heb ik mij direct erg welkom gevoeld en de mensen zijn erg vriendelijk. Er wordt hard getraind maar ook zeker veel gelachen. De trainers zijn capabel, geduldig en behulpzaam als je vragen hebt. Al met al ben ik erg blij dat ik de stap heb gezet om eens een proefles te proberen want één les smaakt naar meer! "
Outstanding gym and great people, definitely the best place for Jiu-Jitsu in Utrecht. I have been training here for two years and the guys have constantly been improving the gym and expanding the repertoire of the classes. Also very beginner friendly.
I've been training here for quite some time and I really enjoy every bit of it. Clean, high level, professionalism and a good respectfull group of training partners.
I’ve been training here for over two years. It’s a great gym with an uplifting vibe, providing classes and or open mat hours on a daily basis. Head instructor Simeon offers structured lessons and gives attention to everybody on the mat. The gi classes on Monday and Wednesday are continued with no gi classes, addressing the fundamentals of bjj as a whole. A full class on takedowns is devoted on Saturday’s by instructor Hakar. Looking forward to seeing you on the mat!
Amazing place for jiujitsu. Great atmosphere. Lots of high belts and very beginner friendly. There is even a 6 week beginner course.
" Great gym with a fantastic culture. Amazing environment to train BJJ and learn so much more along the way! "
