JJIF Membership in 2020

On Monday 18th May 2020 the New Zealand Ju Jitsu Federation was officially made a member of the Ju-Jitsu International Federation (JJIF).

The JJIF is the international Ju Jitsu entity that is working through the Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to make Ju Jitsu an officially recognised Olympic Sport.

Our membership to JJIF allows us to send New Zealand athletes to the World Combat Games, the Asian Olympic Committee’s (AOC’s) Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games and other JJIF competitions.

We have taken this proactive step to further enable Ju Jitsu to become an Olympic sport and allow future NZ athlete representation at any recognised Olympic Games. We look forward to working with the NZ Ju Jitsu community and with NZ Grappler to further this opportunity.
