U.S. Coalition of Sport Jujitsu Organizations Agrees on Joint National Tournament to Be Held at Ohana 2016
On the 27th of February 2016 a historic summit on Sport Jujitsu took place in Reno, Nevada. This congress of all the major Sport Jujitsu Organizational Heads was held at the beautiful Nugget Casino. They came together from all
This Coalition of Organizational Heads unanimously agreed that the problem with Sport Jujitsu in the US has been that the tournaments have been scattered and isolated throughout the country, with no true continuity or unity. It was decided that much could be gained with unity and mutual support of all the US organizations. By having this Coalition of Organizations, we can have unifying tournaments both regionally and nationally.
With this unified national coalition, all Sport Jujitsu organizations involved will benefit from increased competition and exposure for the advancement of both the athletes and the United States overall. Each Sport Jujitsu Organization will maintain its own culture and anonymity while benefiting from this coalition. All involved considered the creation of this coalition no less then “Epic” for Sport Jujitsu in the United States with the ultimate, long term goal being International competition with the other 88 countries already competing in Sport Jujitsu.
This U.S. Coalition of Sport Jujitsu Organizations unanimously agreed to hold the first U.S. National Unifying tournament at the prestigious “Ohana” Conference in Nevada in June of 2016. This important event will use Jujitsu

To All Dojo Heads and Jujitsu America Members,
As the new chair of the Sport Jujitsu Committee, it’s with great enthusiasm that I can announce that Jujitsu America will introduce Sport Jujitsu at the Ohana convention in Reno, Nevada in June of 2016. It is the first time multiple Sport Jujitsu Organizations have agreed to come together to promote and compete in Sport Jujitsu at the national level. The collective goal of these various Sport Jujitsu organizations is for the United States to have a powerful presence on the much larger international Sport Jujitsu scene.
Our hope is that Ohana 2016 will be a segue into more collaboration with the national Sport Jujitsu Community, with local, regional, and national competitions. I would like to personally encourage all Dojo Heads to support this unique opportunity to enrich and perpetuate our art, our athletes and our organization.
Coach Willy Cahill
Chair of the Sport Jujitsu Committee
