For more than 18 years, PJJF has enjoyed a steady and constructive development. Over this period, sports in Pakistan and Ju-Jitsu in particular have benefitted from tremendous growth from tremendous growth but have also faced challenges. The diversity of PJJF is exceptional, with 12 recognised provincial associations along with institutional/departmental organizations representing wide range participants nationwide.
The PJJF is keen to preserve the uniqueness of the sport while increasing interest in the event. Looking forward, the objective is to intensify the relationship between the Federation, its members and its athletes. We shall seek new grounds for collaboration and new themes to develop together and we will increase our mutual support. It is by working together and standing united and that all stakeholders of our sport can make the most of its unique and valuable diversity.
Throughout the years, we have organized Annual Competitions which allow large number of students, coaches and referees from various backgrounds with a place and opportunity to meet and share their experiences and ideas. The success of these championships has regularly increased with time, which goes to show how dynamic the Federation’s members are in putting themselves forward for the organization of these events. We have always endeavored to satisfy the athletes’ aspirations by regularly promoting innovative sport disciplines such as Ju-Jitsu and Belt Wrestling; and aim to retain the spirit of play and encourage the development of an open and curious mind among the athletes.
As Bruce Lee said, “The best fighter is not a Boxer, Karate, or Judo man. The best fighter is someone who can adapt on any style. He kicks too good for a Boxer, throws too good for a Karate man, and punches too good for a Judo man,” and a combination of all these is what you will find with us.
