Welcome to the Canadian Arm of the Original European Jujitsu Jujutsu Union

Our mission is to help promote the Original European Jujitsu / Jujutsu Union that was founded by Dr. Vernon C.F. Bell, in 1963. In accordance with the vision of our founder and now President, Javier Galan, it is our desire to foster the true way of the warrior (budo) while being respectful of all martial arts styles world wide.

The EJJU is open to all martial artists and all styles of the martial arts.
Our organization is recognized as an international governing body for Ju-Jitsu by the
International Council of Sports Science and Physical Education [ICSSPE] and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization [UNESCO]. Therefore members can rest assured that their EJJU qualifications are recognized world-wide.
