Abu Dhabi: The AJP Tour UAE National Jiu-Jitsu Championship 2023 is all set to kick off July 7, at the Mubadala Arena in Abu Dhabi, promising an action-packed weekend for athletes and fans.
Organised by the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation (UAEJJF) in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Jiu-Jitsu Pro (AJP), the event will bring together hundreds of athletes from various clubs and academies across different divisions, including Kids, Infants, Juniors, Teens, Youths, Amateurs, Professionals, and Masters.
The three-day championship, scheduled from 7th to 9th July, will showcase the exceptional skills and talents of the jiu-jitsu athletes. The first day of the tournament will feature thrilling competitions in the Kids, Infant, and Junior categories. On the second day, the Youth, Teen and Masters divisions will take center stage, while the third and final day will witness the fierce matches between Amateurs and Professionals.
Mr. Rodrigo Valerio, Operations Director at the AJP, remarked that “the AJP UAE National Jiu-Jitsu Championship is crucial for the players competing in the AJP Tour Rank as it awards the first-place winners with 1000 points, giving them the opportunity to rise in the ranking.
“The second-place holder will receive 800 points, while the third-place holder will be awarded 600 points. This offers a great incentive for more and more athletes to participate in as many events as possible, as those with the highest rankings from each country will have the opportunity to be invited to compete at the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship. This will give them an advantage in the bracket. Moreover, the players with the highest rankings following the ADWPJJC will receive the Best Player Award in their respective category or continent at the Abu Dhabi World Jiu-Jitsu Awards,” the Operations Director added.
