The UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation has been doing incredible work over the past years and I can't wait to come to Abu Dhabi”

Rener Gracie, the son of Rorion Gracie said “to all the people who train, or love Jiu-Jitsu in the UAE, you don't know how privileged you are in a country that has prioritized the training of Jiu-Jitsu, I would love to have that in my country here and if you are ever in America visiting, please come join me at the Gracie Academy, train with us, we would love to share the mat with you. I wish the best of luck to all the participants tomorrow at the Grand Slam and I look forward to be there at the event”
