We have entered Phase 3 and here at the Scottish Ju Jitsu Association not a lot has changed however we are currently working at the HQs to make the necessary changes to bring the facility up to a Covid-19 Secure facility. We will inform all members of what to expect and the new changes prior to opening. We appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing you all again.
We have produced the guidelines for all Ju Jitsu participation in Scotland. The message is clear. The nation is still not ready to permit indoor activities such as Ju Jitsu yet, but, it is permissible for a small group to meet outdoors to exercise and practice Kobudo (weaponry) or Ju Jitsu in kata form in preparation for picking up the activity when the restrictions relax sufficiently to permit it indoors. Full details can be found in the SJJA Phase 3 Arrangement for Ju Jitsu document found on the right. It should be read in conjunction with the Scottish Government's Route Map for the return to sport also found as a link on the right.
The SJJA is planning to open all clubs again once Phase 4 has been successfully reached.
If you have further problems or simply wish some further advice, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be happy to advise you accordingly.
If you have any questions or need clarity, please contact:

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

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!

The SJJA actively invite all SJJA members to create a profile and so access the member pages within the site. The website will also be a vehicle for sharing information such as newsletters and bulletins, like this. Creating a profile is easy enough but if you do get into difficulties the HELP button is there or if you need further assistance, just contact the SJJA HQs.
To all the SJJA members who have created a profile, thank you so much. We look forward to servicing your membership to its fullest. Don't forget to put a photo of yourself onto your profile.
