UAE’s top jiu-jitsu fighters and clubs will return to the mats in force at the first rounds of the Mother of Nation (MON) and the Vice President’s Jiu-Jitsu leagues scheduled to be held at Al Nasr Club on January 15-16.]
These tournaments are the start of the 2021 domestic season of the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation (UAEJJF). The Vice President’s Jiu-Jitsu League is one of the most respected tournaments for male fighters domestically while the MON Jiu-Jitsu League is the premier tournament for female jiu-jitsu fighters in the UAE.
The tournaments will be contested over five rounds, instead of the earlier three, and will allow athletes to compete in three categories - Under-16, Under-18, and Adults.
While athletes will represent their clubs in the tournament, their results on the mat will see them earn points that contribute to individual rankings in addition to their team standings.
Mubarak Al Menhali, Technical Director, UAEJJF, said that the extended nature of the tournament and the chance to collect valuable ranking points, both individual and for clubs, would ensure high-quality action and also serve as effective preparation for upcoming international tournaments.
