What Are the JJIF Sport Ju-Jitsu Disciplines?

The mission of the JJIF is to continuously develop, improve, promote and propagate the Ju-Jitsu values on a global platform. Therefore, it hosts several great Sport Jujitsu tournaments, including the JJIF World Championship.

Otherwise, the JJIF allows competing, with different rules and regulations, in different jujitsu declines such as:

  • Ne-Waza
  • Duo System
  • Fighting System
  • Contact Ju-Jitsu

Jiu-Jitsu Ne-Waza

Jiu-Jitsu Ne-Waza is a fighting style similar to Brazilian jiu-jitsu with slightly different rules. It does not use striking and relies solely on ground combat and takedowns to dominate the fight.

Two opponents compete against each other to win the fight. They can use standing and ground techniques to outclass their opponents.

Thus, Ne-Waza competitors can use throws, takedowns, locks, chokes, control techniques, position advancement (guard passes, sweeps), and so on. Otherwise, a Ne-Waza bout is won if you submit your opponent or score more points at the end of the clock.

Aside from that, to avoid disqualification, contestants must adhere to the competition dress code and personal criteria. Competitors, for example, must wear high-quality white GI that is clean and in good condition. In addition, participants must wear elasticated underwear.

Sport Jujitsu Duo System

Duo System is a self-defense-centered jujitsu combat sports style. It pits two jujitsu fighters against a series of 12 assaults chosen randomly by the mat’s referees.

Strangulation methods, chokeholds, punches or kicks, and armed techniques are all available to jujitsu Duo System fighters (male, female, or mixed).

A jujitsu duo system bout is won based on the competitor’s potent attack, biomechanical principles, opponent control, attack efficacy, fighter attitude, execution speed, and so on.

Jujitsu Fighting System

Fighting System is another sport jujitsu system that takes a different approach to combat by allowing strikes, takedowns, and ground grappling techniques under a separate set of regulations.

A jujitsu fighting system bout is structured into three three-minute combat segments:

  • Part 1: The first stage of the jujitsu fighting system game. It begins with both fighters standing and exchanging strikes while managing distance and balance to win points.
  • Part 2: The second stage of the jujitsu combat system game began when one of the fighters arrived to put up a grasp on his opponent’s Gi. Both combatants cannot land strikes in this situation but can perform throws, takedowns, joint locks, and strangle methods.
  • Part 3: The third jujitsu fighting system game stage begins when one of the fights falls to the ground. Both fighters cannot land strikes in this situation, but they can perform a variety of submission tactics and transitions, such as guard passing, joint locks, and choke submissions.

Finally, the jujitsu fighting system battle is won by amassing the most points in each of the three jujitsu fighting system game components.

Contact Ju-Jitsu

Sport Contact Ju-Jitsu differs significantly from Brazilian jiu-jitsu In terms of rules and fighting technique. It is a dynamic and one-of-a-kind fighting combat system that combines essential Ju-Jitsu techniques from the Fighting System, Ne-Waza, and the Duo System.

As a result, it is a constant and full-contact battle using multiple strategies to defeat an opponent within a set time limit, with particular attention paid to each athlete’s safety and fair play.

Athletes in a Contact Ju-Jitsu match can use various techniques to defeat an opponent. Punches, kicks, elbow and knee strikes, throws, sweeps, locks, pins, grappling tactics, takedowns, chokes, and submission holds are all legal.

Finally, the contact ju-jitsu match is won by knocking out your opponent (through successful submission or pure knockout) or disqualifying your opponent. However, if there is no clear winner (knockout) based on effective technique execution, the referee’s discretion will determine the winner.

Final Thoughts

Ju-Jitsu is one of Japan’s oldest martial arts, having evolved from the warrior class in the 17th century. It focuses on teaching efficient self-defense techniques that can be used defensively or offensively to subjugate one or more opponents.

Moreover, the current sport of jujitsu is a subset of techniques from various martial arts, including judo, aikido, sambo, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, etc.

Aside from that, the Ju-Jitsu International Federation (JJIF) is one of the most martial arts federations in the world that supports the jujitsu sport.
