Sponsored: for the 15th edition of Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship…

Abu Dhabi has become a magnetically-charged global hub for all things entertainment over the past few years. But nowhere is this more evident, than in the arena of global sporting events. There’s the UFC, the F1, Spartan World Championships, T10, triathlons, the ADNOC Marathon, NBA warm-ups and FIBA finals, men’s and women’s Mubadala tennis tournaments, the golf tours, cycling events, swimming and a world calendar highlight for sport that has a long running affinity with the UAE, Jiu-Jitsu.

Taking place this November, the cream of the martial arts world will descend on the capital once again for the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship (ADWPJJC). Held at the Mubadala Arena in Zayed Sports City, the dates for the 2023 edition have been confirmed as November 1 to 10.

The tournament, now in its 15th consecutive year, represents the exciting climax of Abu Dhabi Jiu Jitsu Pro (AJP), a collection of over 80 events that plays out across all six continents. It draws the eyes of contenders and supporters of the sport from across the globe, with an ever-evolving complexity of programme and participants each bringing their own regionally-influenced styles to the mat.

Let the good times roll

And it’s not just about the competitive combat either – the ADWPJJC stands on a platform of enthralling entertainment and perhaps best of all, for fans wanting to come and spectate –entry is absolutely free.

Happening alongside the professional tournament, there will be a Masters Competition, one for amateurs, for people of determination and for youth – with a variety of belt grades locked in to the non-stop action.
