Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, received on Monday a delegation of the Jiu-Jitsu International Federation, JJIF, led by its President Panagiotis Theodoropoulos.

The UAE leaders also welcomed a delegation of the UAE Jiu Jitsu Federation and a number of athletes who won continental and international jiu-jitsu championships in 2016.

Congratulating the winners for their landmark achievements over the past two years, Their Highnesses Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed expressed their happiness at the great performances, combat skills and the enthusiasm shown by the athletes.
