The United States Sports Jujitsu Alliance (USSJA) was officially formed to represent the World Council of Ju-Jitsu Organizations (WCJJO) in the United States and further support the growth and development of Sport Jujitsu. The USSJA operates as a not-for- profit organization, is non-style, and does not provide ranking.
