Abu Dhabi: Some of the most exciting jiu-jitsu players from across the globe and especially in the Middle East are descending in Abu Dhabi to perform at the fourth leg of the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam(r) Jiu-Jitsu World Tour, which is set to take place in Abu Dhabi on Jan.12 and 13 at the Mubadala Arena, Zayed Sports City.

Igor Silva, Black belt world champion, who is competing in the 110kg Adult category, said: “It’s good to have the Grand Slam come to the home of Jiu-Jitsu. I’ve trained well without injuries with my ‘commando group’ team-mates. We did well at the Grand Slam in Rio, we are hoping to finish in the top three as a team in Abu Dhabi, so I think this one will be one of the best of the season, see you all at the Mubadala Arena.”

Strategic partnerships are really important to take a product and propel it towards sustainability.”
