JJFP SEA Trials Invitation Letter

Southeast Asian Game Qualifiers - weight divisions

Jiu Jitsu Federation of the Philippines (JJFP) is the official National Sports
Association (NSA) of the Philippines recognized by the POC and the PSC .
BJJFP recognizes the positive role an NSA can have on the sport in the
Philippines and will endeavor to work with and assist the JJFP to
reach common goals.

One of the functions of an NSA is to select a National pool of players to
represent the Philippines at International competitions.
The major competition for selection is the National Trials.
To be eligible for selection you must compete and place in at least one JJFP event.
Selection is based on the best results of the competitors.

SEA Games Trials.
On Nov 4 the SEA Games Trials will be held.
This is an open competition to all Teams including Deftac who have made several announcements that there players have been omitted from the National Team
There has never been any restriction in place for Filipinos BJJ competitors or Teams to compete in any JJFP event.
All players have to do is register and ensure they meet the eligibility criteria below.

JJFP sincerely wish to see the biggest number of eligible players contest for places so the best possible Team can be selected.
The SEA Games is an important event in the Sporting calendar of the South East Asian region and for the first time Jiu Jitsu will be represented .

It is unfair to the sport and to the players to deny anyone their chance to compete for their country in front of a home crowd .
There are no restrictions on any eligible BJJ competitors from any Teams who wish to compete .
The National Team should represent the best players in the country so its important that all teams send their members , no eligible players will be excluded.
The SEA Philippine Team will comprise of four players per division but the POC has approved the weight classes for the SEA Games as per Team entry form.

This is a clear and open invitation to all BJJ schools to send their best players to find the best Team to represent the country at the 2019 SEA Games.
