Nilay özral, Aldar Academies CEO, said:
“This is a sport that demands great physical ability and a high degree of mental discipline to succeed - both of which will serve our young students well in the future. This is why the UAE’s leadership is aiming to make Jiu-Jitsu a national sport, and why Aldar Academies actively supports their vision to do so through today’s annual event.”
The tournament also saw a demonstration by the UAE's military. The UAE Junior National Team also faced each other in a series of super fights.
