Ontario Jiu-Jitsu Association Statement on COVID19 – April 15th Update

We hope this update finds our members safe and healthy.

Yesterday, the Government of Ontario extended the State of Emergency in the Province until at least May 12th, 2020.

As such, the activities of the Ontario Jiu-Jitsu Association (tournaments, shows) are on hold until such time as the State of Emergency is lifted and Public Health has determined that it is safe for us to resume activities.

The OJA will release updated event schedules when then they become available.   Watch our webpage and the OJA Facebook group for the latest updates.

We encourage our members to keep in contact with their clubs/academies/dojos – several are offering online lessons for their members.

Our Board of Directors continues to work with all of our stakeholders to keep current on the latest information and the latest plans of the Government.  We also continue to keep the Ministry informed on the impact this is having on our Association and membership.

We continue to be available to our member clubs/academies/dojos for any questions/concerns they may have.

We continue to encourage all of our membership to stay current with both the Government of Canada and the Ontario Public Health webpages regarding Covid-19.   This information is updated regularly and with the latest recommendations of our experts in Public Health.  Additionally, we include the webpage for the World Health Organization information on Covid19
