Trent University

About the Club
The Trent University Jiu Jitsu Club was established in 1993, and has been a fixture of both the Trent community, and of Peterborough’s martial arts community, ever since. Training at our club is inclusive to both Trent students and community members. New members, including complete beginners, are always welcome, and your first week is free to try.

Instructors

Matt Susac first began training in martial arts in 2005 with Shorin-Ryu Karate, where he learned a basic understanding of striking and self-defence. In 2009, under Andy Dobie Sensei, Matt began his training in jiu jitsu at the Peterborough YMCA club, while also frequenting the Toronto club and the York University club. During Matt’s time at York University under Jennifer Higgs Sensei, he acted as an assistant instructor. Matt acknowledges the guidance and inspiration of Jon Jamnik Sensei along his path in jiu jitsu.

He now primarily trains at the Peterborough Green & Above, and since 2013, Matt has been the deputy instructor at the Trent University club. Matt earned the rank of Shodan and the title of Sensei in 2015. He moved on to become Club Instructor of the Peterborough YMCA, and as of September 2016, has returned to Trent as Club Instructor.
