Event History

A non-profit event agency founded by three sports clubs specifically for the German Open Ju-Jutsu. This is unique in Germany!

Three clubs from the region:

Sports Club Bushido Erlense e.V.
Sports Club Budokan Maintal e.V.
Turngemeinde 1837 Hanau a.V.


The basic idea was - to bring the German Open Ju-Jutsu back to Hanau!

The tournament, not to be confused with the German Championship, is one of the biggest and most important events in this sport.
Every year the international elite meets here to fight their champions!

In the years 2001/2002 this championship was created in Hanau - founded by the Ju-Jutsu department of TG Hanau.

From the Main-Kinzig Cup developed the German Open. This was then discharged nine years in Hanau and after a short break four years in Gelsenkirchen.

Even then, more than 1000 competitors from all over the world traveled to Hanau to compete in different weight classes and disciplines.

From the year 2019 the German Open are back at home!
