Abu Dhabi has loads of gyms and centres for training and most of those offer some of the most exclusive facilities and classes.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu – a grappling system in which participants use technique and leverage to subvert strength and brute force by way of chokes and joint locks – has become the fastest growing martial art in Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi is considered one of the worldwide capitals of jiu-jitsu, with many fighters and training moving to the UAE to take their careers to the next level.

Additionally, other popular martial arts in Abu Dhabi are Cobra Muay Thai boxing, kickboxing and oriental kobudo.
