• Temporary Clo​sure


    Dear Students


    Following the latest advice from the government’s announcement yesterday along with the UKBJJA.


    The decision has been made to temporary close the gym from Tuesday 17th March.


    The Professors and Instructors here at ImpulseBJJ take safety important and believe that this is the right decision to limit any risk to yourselfs as individuals and each other as a team due to the current climate.


    It has been a tough decision but feel this is the right one at this time.


    We will keep regular contact and updates with you and aim to offer regular service back as soon as possible.


    Thank you for support and understanding in these challenging times.

  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) in Peterborough!

    Join us and practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a safe and family friendly environment

    A relatively new martial art, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) was made famous in the early 90's when Royce Gracie successfully won the first UFC tournament defeating several other representatives of different martial arts.

    BJJ is a grappling based martial art that focuses on the use of joint locks, chokes and leg attacks to force your opponent into submission.

    We provide a safe, friendly and ego-free environment for anybody regardless of age, fitness and experience level to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu! Whether your goal is to compete on an international level, train for self-defense or simply just to keep yourself in shape, our instructors can help you reach your goals!

    What to expect

    A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class at Impulse BJJ typically starts with a short warm-up, conditioning and stretching followed by a technique such as a sweep or a submission, after a short while of practicing the technique demonstrated by the instructor, we then spar for the remainder of the class. The sparring is completely optional but it is definitely the most enjoyable part of the class! Our BJJ classes are very beginner friendly and you are encouraged to train at your own pace.

    Ladies BJJ Class


    We offer a Ladies only class on Wednesday and Friday evenings. During this class we will be emphasising the self defence aspect of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as well as competition. There’s many reasons to get started in BJJ including Learning to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger attacker and Developing the awareness to protect yourself and stay safe.

    Give your kids a lifelong gifts of personal success, confidence, discipline and self-defence while making sure they have a ton of fun.

    The program integrates; self-defence techniques, conditioning and skill oriented games aiming to improve your child’s motor skills, agility and flexibility.


    Juniors BJJ Classes 9-14 years old


    In a age where kids are all likely to stay at home and play video games, the benefits of getting out there and learning something new at same time as becoming fit and making new friends has never become more clear.
