New European Athletes Commission for Europe

Introduction of the new European Athletes Commission.

JJEU board is happy and proud to introduce to our European Community a new Athletes Commission. The pleasant of the new commission is the fact that the 3 athletes each are specialist in one of our disciplines, like DUO/SHOW, Fighting and JiuJitsu. 

Here a small introduction of the new commission members written by them selves:

Miss Farne (Italy, Fighting)

My name is Antonella Farnè, I’m a 26 italian girls with big dreams that brought me all around the World. I started Ju Jitsu in 2008 and I’ve always competed in Fighting System. I work with my father as Administrative clerk for an agricultural company.
My biggest goal nowadays is to win the World Combat Games, which I qualifyed for, and then straight to the World Games in 2025.

Miss Krahn (Germany JiuJitsu – Newaza)

My name is Denise Krahn and I am from Berlin, Germany where I train and coach at Hilti BJJ Berlin. I am a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Brownbelt under Frank Burczynski and Pedro Duarte. I have been part of the German National Team since 2019 and have won the European and Word Championship in 2021 and again in 2022. I also had the great pleasure to win this years first European Nogi Championship.

I am in the lucky position to be part of a military program, that allows me to train full time, but I am also very invested in developing the BJJ youth scene, working together with the athletes of tomorrow and helping them to reach their personal goals.

Starting this year I will be part of the Athlete Commission, trying to represent the interest of athletes to the best of my ability, so that we and future athletes get to do the sport that we all love under the best possible conditions.

Dear JJEU Board, dear European Community.

My name is Johannes Horak from Austria and I am honoured to be the main chairman for the Athlete Commission. I like to introduce myself.

I am doing Jiu Jitsu since i can remember. I am 3. Dan Black belt Jiu Jitsu. My main competition discipline is DUO and SHOW. My greatest achievements in DUO are second place at the European Championships and also second place at the World Championship in SHOW.

My goals are to be world champion, European champion, to win the World Compatgames in DUO and to qualify for the next World Games.

Another goal of mine is to work close with the athletes to change DUO in a good and entertaining way.

I am really looking forward working working with everyone in JJEU and in JJIF.

Yours faithfully,

Chairman Athletes Commission
Johannes Horak
