USJJO is very excited to announce that Alexandra Barillas is now an official board member of the USJJO as an athlete representative. Alex will be representing the USA this week at the JJIF Worlds in Colombia and also competed in the JJIF Pan-American Championships in both Mexico and Panama, medaling in ne-waza.
We have also had a large selection of male athletes inquire about being an athlete representative. If the male athletes that would like to be considered could submit a short summary of their competition experience, general ju-jitsu and any other brief notes that they would like to mention about themselves, that would help in the selection process.
We would like our board member athlete representatives to have JJIF competition experience (Worlds, Pan-Americans, Grand-Slams, Open, Nationals).
We look forward to the valuable opinions and efforts Alexandra will bring to the USJJO as she represents the athletes as a board member.
We ask that the male athletes submit their summaries by November 30, 2017.
