With Goal of Joining the Olympics, 2015 WPJJC Makes Changes to Regional Qualifiers

 

 

In the goal to bring Jiu-Jitsu to the Olympics, the organizers of the World Pro JJC, the UAEJJF have just announced through Graciemag changes in the qualifying system for the 2015 edition.

The goal is to have even more qualifiers so that as many competitors from all parts of the globe come compete at the World Pro.

Last year the UAEJJF joined forces with the JJF (Ju Jitsu federation, which works with the International Olympic Committee) and their goal is the Olympic games for our beloved sport of BJJ.

 

There will be a set of championships in each continent.

Each championship will qualify 10 male competitors and 6 female competitors for the World event in the UAE in April.

Dates for the national championships will be announced very soon.
