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. Our objective is to provide sport jujitsu enthusiasts with new opportunities to compete in quality local, national and international competition, in addition to experiencing the benefits and values of cultural exchange. The USSJA is also a supporting member of the United States Jujitsu Federation, and other associations supporting sport for all.
