The goal of the JA Sport Jujitsu program is to promote a balanced and vigorous approach to competition Jujitsu that provides equal opportunity for competitors from any martial arts background to succeed. The training focus may be in any style of Jujitsu or any other arts combining or including striking and kicking, throwing and takedowns, or grappling. JA Sport Jujitsu tournaments have included practitioners of many different styles of Jujitsu, as well as Judo, Hapkido, Kajukenbo, Karate, Kung Fu, Muay Thai, Tae Kwon Do, and others. Providing a safe format for aggressive competition in this open-style format offers a fun competition experience for all.
Strong competition provides a healthy opportunity for participants to test their skills while allowing the athlete to develop physically, mentally, and culturally. Beyond dynamic competition, good sportsmanship and competitor safety are of prime concern within the JA Sport Jujitsu program. Competitors range in age from 6 to 60+, with most competitors planning to compete with 100% focus on tournament day, then going back to school or work the next day. In order to ensure this, the JA Sport Jujitsu program has employed a range of safety rules designed to protect the athletes, while allowing them to fully test their skills and techniques in competition.
