Want to teach Jiu-Jitsu in Abu Dhabi? Teacher selection tomorrow!

Want to teach in Abu Dhabi?

You, Jiu-Jitsu teachers in Brazil, may well be whooping it up at Carnival. Now I don’t mean to interrupt the merriment, but I’ll cut dryly to the chase: job opportunities, and paying good salaries.

I just got off the phone with my friend Lubomir Guedjev, a representative of Palm Sports, an Abu Dhabi company that will be carrying out the teacher selection process tomorrow and the day after (February 22 and 23) in São Paulo and on the 25th and 26th in Rio de Janeiro.

Lubo is flying over to Brazil today along with Brazilians José Junior, otherwise known as “Ciência,” and Perlin Nunes, the delegation’s female representative. They’re enthused about the task at hand: selecting 45 teachers to head Jiu-Jitsu classes at public schools in the United Arab Emirates. There are already 80 teachers over there doing just that.

To help you out, I sought to find out what the interviews will be like, but Lubo was categorical: “I can’t tell you; it’s a wild card I’ll be using. They need to know English and Jiu-Jitsu; the rest they’ll find out when the time comes.”

Despite the veil of secrecy that usually surrounds recruitment, there’s one thing I can tell you up front: you’re not going to need to train with anyone nor demonstrate your techniques in the hotel lobby. It’ll be all on theory, so no need to take your gi. Just show you’re organized by downloading the application and bringing it with you all filled out, with a photo, as well as any certificates or diplomas you may have.

Hint: Use that confidence Jiu-Jitsu bestowed on you starting at white belt all the way to black. And think positive. Your dream of working in the Middle East may be closer to coming true than you may think.

    The problem with that is these teachers teach in Public school in the UAE. That means this is government funded.(The Sheik loves BJJ and is a black belt himself) The US department of Education would approve of something like this. Even though, it fits perfectly into the guidelines of P.E. and it would teach kids about anatomy and bio-mechanics, thus improving math and science test scores. Very few in the US understand BJJ on a level that goes any deeper than the UFC because that’s what is popular. As we all know BJJ one of those you have to feel to understand you can’t just watch it. They come up all kinds of reasons for no. It promotes violence, boys and girls can’t be in the same class together. The list goes on but you get the point. When BJJ itself gets mainstream exposure it’ll be easier, but that within itself is difficult because BJJ looks boring to the uneducated.
