Dear Budo friends,
We are facing serious problems in the world, the Covid-19 virus, also known as Corona already results in the dead of more then 8500 people and more then 200.000 people whit the virus.
JJEU and Israeli-an JuJitsu federation are full aware that European Federations and their athletes, coaches and staff want to know more about the scheduled European Championship Adults and Masters for June 2020. Therefore the last days, JJEU board and Israeli-an JuJitsu federation board had several phone meetings about this event.
JJEU board, Israeli-an JuJitsu Federation, Israel Government, and other local government and direct involved organizations therefore made the next decision:
* The European Championship for Adults and Masters will be postponed. In a few days we will inform you all with the new date, which most likely will be after the Summer Holidays. JJEU will be in coordination with JJIF also about the new date.
For now Ju-Jitsu European Union board have the next message for all of you:
