Dear sport friends, respected members from the JJEU/JJIF Sport Federations. This year is a great year for ju-jitsu. We have organised very successful ETM to prove that athletes, referees and coaches can and should work together for the benefit of development, we have had two big grand slam events in Paris and Gelsenkirchen and successful organisation of the EC Seniors in Banja Luka (BIH). General Assembly approved the Resolution on the Mission, Values and Vision of the JJEU 2017 – 2014 and set a Strategy for the future.
Last weekend another great event closed on exactly the same date as 40 years ago a charter has been signed which represent the milestone on our legacy – that day European Ju-Jitsu Federation was established.
