The European Grappling & Jiu-Jitsu Federation (EGJJF) was established to serve the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu community in Europe. Its goal is to help members and participating schools improve their BJJ skills and to give them easy access to the best instructors in the world. Due to the close association and longstanding contact of the founders of the EGJJF with Master Rickson Gracie, the programs, seminars, training and curriculum of the federation are entirely focused on the style and philosophy of Rickson Gracie. The chairman of EGJJF, Harold Harder, is the highest-ranking blank belt under Rickson Gracie in Europe. EGJJF is among other things responsible for belt testing, organizing seminars on BJJ and inviting world-class instructors to come and share their knowledge with us. Partisla BJJ is a proud member of EGJJF!
