CJJIF Membership


In any country, CJJIF strive to have a Memebr National Federation (MNF) of Combat Ju-Jutsu for the full development of our sport in accordance with the Statutes of CJJIF. The presence of a national federation involves opening branches in different regions of the country, holding regional and national championships and forming a national team to participate in international CJJIF tournaments.

After or during this actions, the National Federation of Combat Ju-Jutsu begins to hold regional and national tournaments, legues, referee and technical seminars and take part in CJJIF international championships.
