Commenting on the occasion of Emirati Women’s Day, Al Romaithi said: “Emirati females are reaching new heights in both local and international stages in various fields including cultural, social, economic and sports.

“We are encouraged by the fact Emirati females play an active and influential role within the Federation, including as athletes, coaches, board members, referees and more.

“The UAEJJF is committed to welcoming Emirati women and females from all nationalities into the ju-jitsu family. The UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation urges women to engage in sporting activities due to the positive impact it brings on mental and physical health and lifestyle.

Jiu-jitsu also helps to enhance self-confidence and promote values such as acceptance of others, humility and tolerance,” added Al Romaithi. 

The UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation is proud to offer its full support to Emirati females based in the UAE and around the world. The federation's efforts were highlighted by the female Emirati athletes who won 4 of the 11 medals at the 4th Asian Jiu Jitsu Championship in Mongolia last month, and the female competitors who won medals and competed at the Kazakhstan Jiu-Jitsu Grand Prix earlier this year.
