Our Junior Elite Team in Abu Dhabi did us proud over the weekend (14-17th April 2017). The level of competition was undoubtably World Class with our athletes competing against multiple national champions from around the world.
We had some tremendous results, bringing home 2 Gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze. More importantly, we were not only proud of the way they competed on the mat, but the way they conducted themselves off the mat.
When we conceived the idea of the JET, we wanted to inspire the next generation of our juniors to dream big and go to another level. To learn how Jiu Jitsu can help them be Champions in life. We have no doubt, from what we saw on this trip, that this group are well on their way to achieving great things. And life long friendships have definitely been forged in the heat of world class competition!
Well done to Bri, Will, Brionii, Kyle and Brodie. We could not be prouder and look forward to seeing more of our athletes become part of JET in the future.
