United States Ju-Jitsu Federation (USJJF) recognizes the importance of clean competition, and has taken an unusually proactive stance in implementing an anti-doping program on behalf of clean athletes and the integrity of our sport, which includes adherence to the WADA Prohibited List
The United States Ju-Jitsu Federation (USJJF) is opposed to the practice of doping in sport, on ethical and medical grounds, and fully supports the position of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) against the use of banned substances and methods.
The use, possession and/or trafficking of banned substances, methods, or the encouragement or counseling to use banned substances, or methods, and/or taking measures to mask the use of banned substances, or methods by any participant in competitions over which the USJJF has jurisdiction is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
The USJJF has adopted WADA’s anti-doping policies and procedures in order to ensure a clean, healthy and fair sporting atmosphere for all athletes.
The rules and regulations of USJJF’s Anti-doping Policy aim to:

– Uphold and preserve the ethics of Sport;
– Ensure that all athletes have an opportunity to compete equally;
– Safeguard the physical health and mental integrity of the athletes;
– Encourage Affiliate Organizations to execute similar regulations with their athletes.
