Jordan’s Ju-jitsu team has become the sixth national sport to use the state-of-the-art Olympic Preparations Centre (OPC) launched by the Jordan Olympic Committee six months ago.
The OPC provides elite athletes with the opportunity to train in suitable surroundings and with the sort of professional support that can aid their preparations.
The Jordan Olympic Committee have included Ju-jitsu in recognition of their exceptional performances on the world stage in recent years.
“We are so happy to be here,” said Zeid Abu Soud, the National coach. “Here we can benefit from all of the top-class services we need like the gym and the training hall so the players are very excited to be here.”
Abu Soud pointed out that Ju-jitsu is preparing for the Asian Championships that will be hosted in Jakarta, Indonesia, in September.
