We are a group of individuals doing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), aiming to develop our sport in Switzerland as we strongly believe that there is a great potential. While academies have opened and grown, thanks to a hand of pioneers who have been teaching in Switzerland for many years, it actually feels like there was no national union to embrace and gather the BJJ Community. Jiu-Jitsu is unconditionally a martial art which transforms people throughout commitment, hard work, resilience, respect, motivation and satisfaction.

Every student should have the opportunity to practice Jiu-Jitsu and improve their acquired techniques, by participating in tournaments and other kinds of events around the mats (e.g. rules courses, seminars, etc.). Our mission is simple. We want to gather all teams from Switzerland with the same state of mind : challengers on the mats, but family spirit outside the mats. 

This is why the Swiss Jiu-Jitsu Association (SJJA) was born, after more than a year of consideration and discussions.



A real circuit of tournaments around some selected cities in Switzerland, in order to give access to competition to everyone. We engage ourselves in organizing tournaments with quality staff, qualified referees, affordable registration fee, great organization and with a national ranking. 

Rules courses

Learn the game's rules with experienced fighters and the refereeing rules with professional international referees. 


Improve your game with new techniques from the best fighters around the world, especially invited to share their knowledge with you.


Let’s fly away and train together : Train - Eat - Sleep. Repeat (print that word... Repeat)


Stay updated with news and selected articles to never miss a thing anymore.


Promotion of our art on social medias, newspapers and TV.

Open mats

We fully support the academies that open their mats to practitioners from other academies. Well done !

SO are you ready to be part of this ? Adjust your techniques, train hard and let’s meet on the mats.
