Formerly, the WJJC syllabus includes the "Ju-Jitsu Fight" principles.
The fight is composed of 3 main phases:
The first phase includes standing techniques (Tachi-Waza) with punches and kicks.
So in the first phase the fighters employ striking until they go to phase 2 (Nage-Waza) with throw techniques.
The third major phase of the fight occurs when a contestant goes to the ground and submission holds are applied (Ne-Waza)
WJJC competitions for Junior start at the age of 8, the kids wear approved headguards, mma gloves and shinguards that guarantee complete safety for them. What is more, while in Junior competitions there is total control of the strikes, for Senior there is full contact with only the teeth guard, shin guard and groin guard.
The contestants main objective is that of submitting the opponent and stuck him on the mat by using Ju-Jitsu techniques like locks, blocks, and choke hold without fingers. Competition time for the fighters is 3 minutes.
