Teams from Al Wahda Club Jiujitsu academy, Al Ain jiujitsu club and Sharjah self-defence sports club walked away with top honours in various categories.

Sheikh Mansoor also praised all the participants at the competition and expressed optimism that the success of the tournament will usher in greater international exposure for UAE's jiujitsu scene.

"This is important for our strategic vision of establishing a healthy lifestyle among all members of the society, with a focus on emerging talents that will guarantee a bright future of sports in the UAE at the global level," he said.
