The United Kingdom Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association (UKBJJA - www.ukbjja.org) is the governing body for the sport and martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) in the UK. It is a not-for profit organisation which aims to provide a governance structure for BJJ, that promotes and develops the sport while allowing individual clubs and practitioners the space and freedom to practice the sport in the way they enjoy. The UKBJJA is currently in the final stages of assessment for full Sport England accreditation.
The UKBJJA was formed in 2013, and the association’s goal is to foster the development of BJJ at elite, community and grassroots levels, raising the profile of the sport but also providing pathways for development and involvement across communities in the UK.
