Information provided by: Dana Mortelmans, JJIF General SecretaryWADA logoAt the JJIF Congress held on 27/11/2008 in Malmo Sweden, JJIF accepted the revised (2009) World Anti-Doping Code (the “Code”).  These Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in conformance with JJIF’s responsibilities under the Code, and are in furtherance of JJIF’s continuing efforts to eradicate doping in the sport of JU-JITSU.

Anti-Doping Rules, like Competition rules, are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played. Athletes and other Persons accept these rules as a condition of participation and shall be bound by them. These sport-specific rules and procedures, aimed at enforcing anti-doping principles in a global and harmonized manner, are distinct in nature and, therefore, not intended to be subject to, or limited by any national requirements and legal standards applicable to criminal proceedings or employment matters. When reviewing the facts and the law of a given case, all courts, arbitral tribunals and other adjudicating bodies should be aware of and respect the distinct nature of the anti-doping rules in the Code and the fact that these rules represent the consensus of a broad spectrum of stakeholders around the world with an interest in fair sport.
Anti-doping programs seek to preserve what is intrinsically valuable about sport.  This intrinsic value is often referred to as “the spirit of sport”; it is the essence of Olympism; it is how we play true.  The spirit of sport is the celebration of the human spirit, body and mind, and is characterized by the following values:

• Ethics, fair play and honesty
• Health
• Excellence in performance
• Character and education
• Fun and joy
• Teamwork
• Dedication and commitment
• Respect for rules and laws
• Respect for self and other participants
• Courage
• Community and solidarity.


Doping is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport.
