More than 300 take part in NAS Jiu-Jitsu
(24 May 2019)


More than 300 of the country’s best grapplers, both Emirati and expatriates, were at the Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex on Thursday, competing for gold in 31 different categories of the NAS Jiu-Jitsu Championship.

Competitions took place in five different divisions – Juvenile Male, Juvenile Female, Male Adult, Female Adult and Male Master  – and Nasser Aman Al Rahma, Assistant Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council, and Yousef Al Batran, a Board member of the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation, were at the venue to present the top 3 of each category with their medals, alongside Adil Yousif Albannay, Chairman of the NAS Sports Tournament’s Technical Committee.

“We, the Jiu-Jitsu fraternity, are really happy to be a part of the NAS Sports Tournament for a second year because this tournament enjoys a great reputation, not just domestically but internationally as well,” said Al Batran.

“I would like to thank His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Sports Council, for giving Jiu-Jitsu this great platform to expand its base in the country and to take the sport to a wider audience.

“Through the Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament, and other local events, the Federation has been able to find many new talents, who have strengthened the ranks of the national teams. Additionally, this tournament is a great preparation for a busy season ahead, which includes the 4thAsian Jiu-Jitsu Championship in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, from July 14-22.”


Dubai Police defeated Al Taher 6-2 on Thursday night to take third place in the NAS Futsal Championships, but the Policemen were far from satisfied.

“Winning third place is the least we could do,” said Waleed Bashr, a Dubai Police player. “I believe this team deserved a lot more than bronze, but we lost in the semi-finals and that was a huge disappointment because I believe we deserved to go further given our performance in all the matches this year.

“We played at a really high level, but unfortunately we could not get the job done in the semis. This is football and we just have to accept the result. But we promise we will come back next year and aim for a bigger achievement.”

Abdullah Abdulbasit, the Dubai Police coach, added: “Winning the third-place playoff is definitely not a consolation or compensation for anything. Given the level this team had shown, our ambitions were much higher than finishing in third place.”
