Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship (14-19 November 2021)
The 12th edition of the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championships took place in April 2021 (after being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic). The competition was hugely successful, with 2000 athletes competing from more than 80 countries.
Fans and competitors alike can rejoice – the 13th edition of the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championships is set to take place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in mid-November!
Organizers of the event are excited for the 13th edition of the tournament, as they believe it will be more popular than the 12th edition since some athletes were not able to compete due to COVID-19 international travel restrictions.
The UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation (UAEJJF) has been consistently putting on some of the highest-level professional grappling competitions in the past few years, offering a truly spectacular experience to both competitors and spectators.
