On the sidelines of the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam Jiu-Jitsu Championship hosted by the Abu Dhabi Jiu-Jitsu Association, AJP, the Mubadala Arena took on a new look with the theme “From Carpet to Stars” painted on its walls as a symbol of ambition. And impossible. In many stations of the world, it returned to its final tour to the capital “Abu Dhabi”, where the impact of a champion Jiu-Jitsu and Emirati astronaut Sultan Al-Neyadi was great for the participants. After he posted several jujitsu moves on his social media platforms wearing a jujitsu uniform known as a kimono inside the International Space Station, players considered the sport an example to follow. I hope you helped Sultan Al Neyadi, a Purple Belt in Jiu-Jitsu, reach his full potential while living on the International Space Station.
He also asks fans to share their favorite moves in jujitsu with him, and then shows them to them in space. “One of the first things I learned in Jiu-Jitsu was to control my breathing and stay calm, which is what I did during the centrifuge test. Jiu-Jitsu helped me get through that,” he added in a video posted on his Instagram. and Twitter pages.
In another photo posted by Al Neyadi, the 2018 Grand Slam champion in Abu Dhabi, he was eager to greet his friends as they prepared to take part in the tournament, coinciding with the start of the tournament. This year, encourage them to compete on the same stage where Sultan won the gold medal after four fights, citing his success in space and his ability to withstand jujitsu as a big reason for that.
This historic achievement is a source of pride for all Jiu-Jitsu practitioners around the world, especially the children and youth affected by Sultan Al Neyadi’s story. Recorded from generation to generation.
When the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam kids were asked what they knew about Major Sultan Al Neyadi, one of the kids expressed his admiration for him: “I love jiu-jitsu so much, I want to be a champion. Like Sultan Al Neyadi, his story has influenced my life and inspired me to work hard and achieve my dreams.” I believe jujitsu will help me stay strong and patient as I pursue my dream of going into space. This kind of positive impact of Jiu-Jitsu competitions and the achievements of its athletes on children and youth is an indication of the importance of the sport and its impact on developing the personalities of young people and achieving their aspirations.
