CJJC® Systems & Yudanshakai

- National Yudanshakai -

The below listed individuals are CERTIFIED BLACK BELTS, not all the BLACK BELTS LISTER are recognized through the CJJC. Although the CJJC has black belt members from other associations, only the below listed black belts with a ® next to their name have their rank certified by the CJJC. 

If you are a Ju-Jitsuka, Jujutsuka or Jiu-Jitsuka, and would like to have your rank certified by the CJJC, you may do so by completing our requirements. Click here for detailed membership information.

Important Notice: It has been recently brought to the attention of the National Headquarters that there are individuals who are fraudulently or mistakenly claiming to hold CJJC rank certification. Unless the person claiming this rank is in possession of an actual CJJC rank certificate and their name is listed below (Dan level rank only), then their rank is not valid with the CJJC. To report improper claims of CJJC Yudansha or Mudansha grades or to further verify an individual’s rank, contact our National Headquarters at ajitsua@telus.net.
