Dear representatives of JJEU National Federations, dear friends,
As we all are aware, there are serious problems in the World with the Covid-19 virus.
The Covid-19 virus is a virus that can easily spread between people.
At the moment there is no real remedy to prevent spread other than keeping a distance from each other and taking the necessary measures. Events at the international level could pose a potential risk of the virus spreading further and that is something the JJIF and JJEU want to prevent.
JJIF and JJEU feel responsible for our JuJitsu community.
That is why the following decision was made immediately after contact with JJIF HQ:
• We would like to inform that after postponing of JJIF Paris Open and JJIF Balkan Open, JJEU will cancel upcoming European Cups or postpone them to later in the year.
• For June European Championship adults in Israel JJEU and Israel Federation are consulting each other daily. At least at the end of March 2020 we (JJEU) make a decision together with JJIF, Israel Federation and of course local government about postponing are continuation at the settled dates (5, 6 and 7 June 2020) of the championship.
• JJEU strongly advise all National Organizers which are in the middle of organization of JuJitsu events to consider the possible risks of continuation of the events. Stay in close contact with your Government and Health care department. Organizing off these events is at the risk of the LOC and National Federation.
If there are any questions, please let us know. For now, stay safe and stay healthy,
On behalf of the JJEU board,
