The jiu-jitsu summer camp, organised by the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation (UAEJJF) in collaboration with International Vision Investments (IVI), has proven to be a preferred destination for game enthusiasts with more than 120 young jiu-jitsu admirers participating in the first week.

“Youngsters who are genuinely interested in the sport have the perfect opportunity to make the most of their summer break courtesy of the summer camp. The campers were able to sharpen their jiu-jitsu skills and increase their performance because of the range of sports and physical activities, which were exceptionally well arranged,” said Mohamed Abdan, who has his four children attending the summer camp.
“Such camps are very helpful for those who want to pursue a professional career in jiu-jitsu as they will enable them to master new skills through comprehensive training programmes that are designed in accordance with the highest standard,” he said adding: “It’s fantastic to see young Emirati winners taking home medal after medal in international championships. Hope the ongoing summer camp produces more future champions.”
