Peterborough Jiu Jitsu

Peterborough Jiu Jitsu began in 1993, when the first classes were taught at Trent University. In 1998 the Peterborough YMCA club was formed, which moved to the Peterborough Multi-Sport Club in 2019. In the summer of 2021 we relocated to Champions Gymnastics, 2410 Lansdowne St W, Cavan-Monaghan, ON K9J 0G5. The club runs year-round. New members, including complete beginners, are welcome at any time.
