Eugene DomagataEugène Domagata

With great sadness in our heart we inform ju-jitsu community that Eugène Domagata passed away yesterday, 11 September 2017. We have lost a loving and positive person!

Eugène started his Martial Arts career as judoka in Valentiney Doubs in 1956 and achieve his black belt in 1964. A passion to sport and military brought him to Air Force where he, among others, transfer his knowledge to his comrades in arms. After 17 years in service in Air Force and Military his first appointment was a technical adviser for youth and sport in Auxerre (Burgundy) after which he devotedly served on many positions, responsible for education and training. Among others he enjoyed flying (he had a private civil pilot licence), loving music ad photography. As he said many times, he could make his hobbies and passions his career which gave him opportunity to put his heart in his work.

Giving the respect to the self-defence principles and practical application of the Martial Arts ju-jitsu was his love and passion to the end. Not only on the club, local, regional and national level, as Eugene hold many important technical positions within JJEU and JJIF as well in the FFJDA (Fédération Française de Judo Judo, Jujitsu, Kendo et disciplines associées).  His trainings and lectures, giving all around the world on many seminars on a club, regional and national level, were always hard but also full of fun and lough – the quality to make one laughing with small jokes and big smile never left him.

His visions and long-term commitment to develop Ju-Jitsu on all continents was part of his life mission, invested with waste amount of technical and practical experiences. He served years as Sport Director in the JJEU (up to 2012) and received Life Time Achievement Award at the European Ju-Jitsu Championship in Waldorf, Germany in 2013. On the same occasion JJIF awarded him with 9th dan in Ju-Jitsu.

Last year’s Eugène served as General Manager in the JJIF, struggling for better organisation and management to promote and develop Ju-Jitsu worldwide and helping bring it closer to the Olympic.

We have lost a true professional, expert, humanist and friend, a man with great heart and vision, devoted Ju-Jitsu practitioner, teacher and sensei. We express our deepest feelings of sympathy to Eugene’s family.

Eugène Domagata last good bye will be on Friday, 15 September 2017. At 14:15 for close family (232 Boulevard de Sainte-Marguerite, 13009 Marseille, France), 15:30 crématorium ceremony (380 Rue Saint-Pierre, 13005 Marseille, France).

Robert Perc and Frank Furst (photo by Jens Erik Rasmussen, Ju-Jitsu Denmark)On the occasion of the 2017 edition of the Danish Open Intl. tournament the President of the JJEU, Mr Robert Perc, had a special privilege and honour. The President of the ju-jitsu in the Dansk Judo & Ju-jitsu Union, Mrs Lisbeth Hansen, emphasised in her welcome speech a spirit of friendship which goes along with the sport and Mr Perc continued with thanking the organiser of the event to stress out Fair Play and Friendship which are also a moto ot the JJEU. After addressing participants of the Danish Open, Mr Perc gave a special recognition to a special person in a ju-jitsu family.
Mr Frank Fürst has been serving ju-jitsu worldwide for 4 decades, from the early days when European Federation (EJJF -> JJEU) and, later, the International Federation (IJJF -> JJIF) were established. He has been a valuable help and guide for newcomers into our federation and from the capacity of his various positions (from athlete to Vice President and long-term General Secretary) within the federation, he was one of the key-persons in the successful evolving of the European Federation into the International one. He became one of the most recognised figures in ju-jitsu worldwide, as IJJF -> JJIF General Secretary for 15 years. Together with the President of the International Federation (at that time), Mr. Rinaldo Orlandi, and the rest of the Board members and technical officials, Mr. Fürst was the engine of worldwide development and acceptance in the International World Games Association, IWGA, and the General Association of International Sport Federation, GAISF, today known as the SportAccord. Throughout his career, he has been an example of sportsmanlike behaviour, fair play and friendship, as well-known as an individual with enormous energy when assistance and help was needed by the member federations.
In the year when the European federation is celebrating its 40th, and International federation its 30th anniversary, the JJEU has the pleasure and honour to award Mr Frank Fürst from Denmark with the highest award in the JJEU, the Life-Time Achievement Award.
