The British Ju-Jitsu Association ("BJJA") was originally founded in 1956 by the late James Blundell.[1] and was re-constituted in 1988[2]. The association comprises several affiliated Ju-Jitsu groups that operate in Great Britain. These member clubs and associations approached the British Sports Council seeking to establish a single Governing Body for the Martial Art of Ju-Jitsu in this country. The application proved successful and the BJJA became the governing body for British Ju-Jitsu.[3] The BJJA now refers to itself as the BJJA GB (or the British Ju-jitsu Association Governing Body).

As the National Governing Body for Ju-jitsu the BJJA GB is responsible for the administration of the sport[4]. It provides guidance on ethics, safeguarding[5], coaching practice, competition rules, and rank promotions. It also arranges group insurance policies for the member clubs. In 1991 the BJJA GB became a founder member of the United Nations of Ju Jitsu[6] and the BJJA GB Chairman Mr Martin Dixon is the UK's national delegate[7]
