Sport Jiu-Jitsu International Federation (SJJIF) embraces the concept of fair play as a fundamental value integral to sport. Sport without doping is a key component of fair play that demonstrates respect, integrity, and honesty to the sport, oneself, and others.
SJJIF is not yet a WADA Code signatory, but in our recognition of the importance of fair play and sport without doping, SJJIF is in full support of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) mission to lead a collaborative worldwide movement for doping free sport.
SJJIF, in collaboration with WADA, is developing a SJJIF Anti-Doping Policy that adheres to WADA’s anti-doping policies, including arranging a doping control process and abiding by the WADA Prohibited List.
To better support athletes and ensure a positive experience with SJJIF’s adoption of WADA’s anti-doping policies, the SJJIF Anti-Doping Policy will adhere to the following steps:
Step 1: AWARENESS & OUTREACH
SJJIF will promote a social awareness campaign that aims to promote the value of fair play and the importance of BJJ without doping for the integrity of our sport.
Step 2: EDUCATION & PREVENTION
SJJIF will develop education programs that aim to educate athletes, coaches, and other members of the BJJ community with the dangers of doping, anti-doping procedures, athlete’s rights & responsibilities in the doping control process, and the legal & social ramifications of doping.
Step 3: IMPLEMENTATION & ENFORCEMENT
SJJIF will implement the doping control procedures of the SJJIF Anti-Doping Policy and enforce restrictions and/or sanctions resulting from an athlete found to have a positive test and who has undergone the adjudication process. The adjudication process shall provide athletes with a full due process and confidentiality while the case is pending.
