Allow Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the 2016 Olympics

This petition was published by DaveBJJ on Oct 07, 2009

In signing this petition, you will be voting for the inclusion of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the 2016 Olympics in Rio De Janeiro. As one of the recognised national sports of Brazil and an influence on much of their culture and society, we believe it would be an injustice for competitive BJJ not to be included.

With a high number of individuals already practising and a great deal of elite athletes competing for world championships, it's seems an ideal time for this martial art to be seen and enjoyed by a wider population. Please sign this petition in recognition of this great sport and inform any others that have the belief this sport belongs on the biggest stage possible.
