Jiu-Jitsu masters battle on beach

posted on 20/04/2015: 1650 views

The Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship 2015 begins tomorrow, with elite fighters from across the world readying themselves for the showpiece event in the UAE capital, including six-time World Cup champion Rodolpho Vieira and the UAE's own World Champion, Faisal Al Ketbi.

Vieira, who is also the four-time Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion, and Al Ketbi took the opportunity to get to grips with fighting in Abu Dhabi by warming up for the championship, which runs until April 25th at the IPIC Arena at Zayed Sports City, with an impromptu showdown at one of Abu Dhabi's most iconic locations.

The two heavyweights of the Jiu-Jitsu world grappled at the luxurious St. Regis Nation Riviera Beach Club in Abu Dhabi, as they honed their skills ahead of the competition, with Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship mascot, Azzam the falcon, in close attention as the two superstars clashed.

The championship, now in its landmark seventh year, will also feature a Children's Cup for younger fighters and is free to attend. – Emirates News Agency, WAM –
