Khwaiter expressed his great pleasure with this achievement, saying: “I am proud of the achievement in light of the conditions that sport is going through due to the Corona pandemic, but our young champions were able to put a distinct imprint as of the first day of the Abu Dhabi World Junior Championship competitions, which was held at the Zayed City Sports Arena in the capital Abu Dhabi.”

Al Dhaheri thanked the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Association for the efforts exerted to make this global event a success story “in light of what we are going through, but they were able to hold the competitions in the best way, especially since the event is not only at the local level but also global and watched from all over the world.”
He went on to say: “It is not unusual for the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Association to excel in organizing such international events. They always set their sights to have UAE one of the best countries in holding such international competitions, especially in the sport of Jiu-Jitsu, and we always wish them success.”
