    #2, it needs to be practiced in at least 50 countries (female sports) or 75 countries (male sports)

    #3, it needs to hold World Championships.

    #4, it needs to be recognized by the IOC, and finally,

    #5, it needs to be voted in to the games by a 2/3 majority of IOC members at the first IOC meeting following each Olympic Games.
    Wow how the hell did trampoline gymnastics get voted in then!

    I think it would be good for JJ to get it on a world stage exposing it to another level. To people who have never heard of it. But it could also hurt the sport if the majority of people see it as only a sport and abandon it as a self defense. It may take the same route tae kwon do took once it entered the olympics... I think self defense is an important part of JJ. But all in all id like to see it in the Olympics. The exposer would be grand. Im just not sure there is enough competition spread out world wide... The same reason American Football isn't in the Olympics.
