picture page oneWe invite you to the European Championship U18 which will be from Friday, September 23 to Sunday, September 25, in Gelsenkirchen – Germany in the Veltines Arena.  Organiser of the event, German Ju-Jitsu Federation (DJJV) and JJEU are wishing you a pleasant stay in Germany. More details will follow. Please visit us at Facebook where updates and additional information will be published on a daily basis. Registration deadline: September 5!

The JJEU Board would like to apologise to any inconvenience caused of the changed date of the event. At the last minute the German Ju-Jitsu Federation (DJJV) was faced with information that sport hall, originally planned for the event, will not be available on the desired date. Among many unpleasant solutions (move the date or keep the date and use smaller sport hall but prolong EC to 4 days which will be more expensive for the members) we choose one less unpleasant. Change of the date also cumulated a few international events on a very short period (Balkan Open at Cyprus, JJIF Session and Congress and Asian Beach Games, where ju-jitsu is also presented).

Good Governance Implementation in ju-jitsu PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 27 May 2016 12:39

siggsLjubljana, 26.5.2016. One of the areas of interest and focus in ju-itsu on international level (and sport in general) is good governance. Promoting and encouraging from IOC questions of good governance has become (from many aspects) main topic in discussion what we are and what we want to be. JJIF committed us to follow principles of good governance - and JJEU is acting in this direction - timing is crucial, especially now, when JJEU will start a new episode with new board, when another change of statutes is at hand and when striving to be organised by the principles of good governance but yet again to maintain our identity and not forget the basic principles of ethics and conduct.

Mr Robert Perc, JJEU General Secretary and a candidate for JJEU President at upcoming elections in Ghent, Belgium, participated at the Strategic Workshop on Good Governance Sport. Workshop was organised by National Olympic Committee of Slovenia (OCS) and opened by Mr Bogdan Gabrovec, the President of OCS.

The guest of honour with introduction speech was Mr Janez Kocijancic, Honourable President of OCS and Vice President of European Olympic Committees (EOC). Mr Kocijancic stressed on the principle of transparency, which means the public availability of data, preventing abuse and democracy, which calls for a greater athletes’ participation on decision making process. An important principle is ethics, without which sport as such is nothing. Many dangers goes with sport, like doping, match fixing, violence in different forms, racism, corruption… reason more that sports organizations should be managed in a democratic and ethical manner, where integrity, accountability, transparency and democracy must be taken into account in all areas.
