Sensei Travis Boggs Coaching TEAM USA Ju-Jitsu - JJIF World Championships - Paris, France

Kenukan Academy is an official United States Ju-Jitsu Organization (USJJO) Regional Training Center.  Kenukan Academy Owner & Chief Instructor, Sensei Travis Boggs, serves on the USJJO's Team Development & International / National Coaching Committees.  The USJJO is a member of the Ju-Jitsu International Federation (JJIF), which is the world's leading international Ju-Jitsu body. The JJIF is the only Ju-Jitsu organization recognized by the General Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) and the International World Games Association (IWGA).  The JJIF provides the opportunity for elite athletes from their National Members (USJJO) & affiliated Dojos (Kenukan Academy) to compete in the World Games, which are organized and governed by the IWGA under the patronage of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).  Including the United States of America, the JJIF has 106 member countries spanning 4 continents.

 

The JJIF offers three forms of Ju-Jitsu competition: the Fighting System, Ne-Waza (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) and the Duo Self-Defense System.

 

The Ju-Jitsu Fighting is a one-on-one competition divided into three parts.  For part one, the competitor attempts to score with various strikes, punches, and kicks.  Part two begins after one competitor grabs the other and from there they battle for a take-down to the ground.  Part three involves pinning, choking, & joint locks.  The winner is the competitor that accumulated the most points throughout the match.  However, an automatic victory may happen if the competitor received “Ippon” (clean action / full points) in each part.

 

The Ne-Waza (Brazilian) fight starts in a standing position and the competitors try to gain points by utilizing throws, take-downs, pins, sweeps, and submissions (joint locks and chokes). The fight can ultimately be won by a submission. If a submission does not happen, the fight is won by the competitor that has accumulated the most points throughout the match.

 

The Duo Self-Defense System is a discipline where teams of two Ju-Jitsu athletes compete against each other. The teams demonstrate possible self-defense maneuvers against a variety of attacks. The attacks include strangulations, striking attacks, embraces, chokeholds, and weapons.
