Welcome to Jitsu Peterborough - Traditional Japanese Jiu Jitsu
at the Peterborough YMCA and Trent University

Jitsu Peterborough offers an enjoyable atmosphere for participants to achieve a higher fitness level while gaining valuable self-defence skills. Shorinji Kan Jiu Jitsu uses joint locking, throwing and striking techniques to provide an effective defence system. Its wide variety of restraint and takedown techniques allow for controlled responses to a violent confrontation. Jiu jitsu can be used by anyone of any size, strength, weight or gender. Training is tailored to the individual capabilities of each student, and a friendly atmosphere is maintained at all classes. Jiu jitsu is also great fun to learn and gives you the opportunity to meet new people and socialize.
