The 50-Year Club Inclusion Requirements

Candidates for induction into the AJJF 50 Year Club are reviewed according to the following criteria:

  • A registrant must be a member in good standing for 50 years to be eligible to be inducted into the 50 year club.
  • Any periods of inactivity due to lapse in registration or suspension do not count toward eligibility in the 50 year club.
  • Any member in good standing which reaches the total registration requirement of 50 years is eligible for inclusion into the 50 year club and are then nominated to the BoP for review.  The BoP then reviews any and all nominees to determine if inclusion is acceptable.
  • The BoP may also nominate by majority vote any individual they wish, and may thus extend the honor of inclusion in the 50 year club by special nomination.
