History of the Southern California Jujitsu Association

by Professor William Fisher

The Southern California Jujitsu Association (SCJA) was incorporated in the State of California in 1979. The SCJA was comprised of dojos formerly belonging to Region 2 of the American Judo & Jujitsu Federation, who felt that services could be more effectively provided to schools by centralizing administration of contests, examinations and promotions on the local level. The SCJA was the brain-child of James Marcinkus, head instructor of Penmar Jujitsu Kai, and a member of the AJJF National Board of Directors.
