Corona Virus Jan 2022 - update

By Jujitsu, 2022-01-03

2022 is not off to a great start. As of 27th December 2021, all adults contact/combat sessions indoor are under restriction and currently are forbidden. Sessions for children are not affected and coaches must wear a face covering when they conduct sessions. All staff and volunteers are advised to work from home and to keep travel down to a minimum. Those who must attend work must wear a mask and keep a minimum of 1metre of social distance from others. 

We will update the official guidance document online and keep you informed as developments occur.

To All Members of the SJJA

The United Kingdom Anti Doping Agency have developed an assurance framework clearly detailing how each national governing body complies with the arrangements to Keep Sport Clean. The Scottish Ju Jitsu Association supports their steps to keep sport clean and your governing body is working towards full compliancy. 

The UKAD's new initiative to raise awareness involves Squeaky (viz., being squeaky clean) the duck sending out positive messages to all involved in sport that those in sport are participating on a 'level moral playing field'. Keep your eyes peeled for Squeaky.

Corona Virus 2021 - update

By Jujitsu, 2021-03-16

Dear Members

Regrettably we find ourselves still in lockdown, albeit there are relaxations to some restrictions on the horizon, but I doubt if it will include us. 

With the advent of the new 5 level Scottish Government approach to Covid-19 we have published our strategy for the Return to Sport for Ju Jitsu. It consists of easy to read tables with all the necessary information you'll need at a glance.  It can be found at the bottom of the right hand column on this page. 

Along side it, we have updated our arrangements for the Return to Sport document which shows the restrictions and advice. 

Additional advice has been added for Tier 4 areas. 

If you have further problems or simply wish some further advice, please feel free to contact us at We'll be happy to advise you accordingly. 

If you have any questions or need clarity, please contact:

Hanshi Robert G. Ross

Qustion Time...

By Jujitsu, 2017-01-30

One of our junior members posed a great question in class today. He asked, "who invested the toothbrush? "

If you have a response pop it into your blog or send the SJJA a message. Good Luck.

January 2017

Well 2017 has come in with a bang. This year we have some big plans to celebrate a few milestones. The SJJA have been successfully coaching Ju Jitsu in Spain for 25 years. We may have a visit this year from students from Spain to our Honbu Dojo.  We will also be celebrating out 9th year at the new HQ. All clubs have been experiencing an increase in membership, which hopefully is a tidal change for the sport. New members always welcome. Bring it on!
