UAEJJF Postpones upcoming competitions due to Coronavirus

As COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, sweeps the world, it looks like the Jiu-Jitsu community is also taking a hit with UAEJJF just announcing they are to postpone all remaining events. This means Abu Dhabi World Pro may also be affected.

In a recent press release they have written:

UAEJJF Postpones All Sport Activities and Events

To support international efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, the UAE Jiu Jitsu Federation (UAEJJF) has decided to postpone all remaining sport events and activities until further notice to support effective preventative and precautionary efforts.

This decision aligns with the Federation’s commitment to embody the values of the sport of jiu-jitsu and provide an exceptional experience to all athletes, audience and partners. The Federation remains committed to growing the sport of jiu-jitsu and ensuring the health and safety of all athletes and stakeholders.

This also comes with the announcement that the upcoming AJP London Grand Slam is now to be contested behind closed doors. Meaning spectators will be refused entry to limit numbers.
