AIMS and UTS President, Stephan Fox congratulated JJIF for this outstanding initiative, congratulating JJIF President,
Panagiotis Theodoropoulos which is also the AIMS vice president.
JJIF, as an organisation and individually has done outstanding work. Meggie Ochoa, Jujitsu champion and founder of ‘Fight To Protect’ has been one of the key note speakers at the last United Through Sports World Conference and BJJ for the Deaf Youth Philippines has won the world youth ambassador at the UTS World Virtual Youth Festival.
President Fox stated that this session no doubt will be highly interactive and at the end no doubt all participants will walk away with a series of tools for designing solutions which is well needed.
The Ju-Jitsu International Federation (JJIF) recognizes the fact that sport can significantly impact individuals, communities and societies through the transformation of lives. In their sport, we see various projects and initiatives that have demonstrated this. JJIF will host an event to give recognition to such impactful projects as they work towards shared developmental objectives.
Join JJIF & UTS on April 10 at 5:00pm (Dubai time) as we celebrate the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace with the launch of the “Ju-Jitsu for Good” program with a vision of working towards “a better world through Ju-jitsu.”

1. Not with Me – Violence Prevention of the German Ju-Jutsu Association
2. BJJ for the Deaf Youth Philippines – Sharing Jiujitsu to Youth of the Deaf Community
3. Project Aokas – Inclusive Jiujitsu for Cambodia’s At-risk Youth
