Flattered by the news of his marriage to Jordan princess Iman bint Hussein on the homepage of GracieMag.com, the Jiu-Jitsu black belt Zaid Mirza sent us an exclusive shot of his wife after a Muay Thai training, a sport she has been practicing for two years.
According to Mirza, the princess has also been practicing Jiu-Jitsu for a year, which, according to our sources in Jordan, helped the couple become closer. The princess’ brothers, prince Hashim and prince Hamza are also supporters of the gentle art, and today are two tough blue belts.
Another discovery by GracieMag during the wedding ceremony held in March, in Jordan, is that one of the noble guests, sheikh Khaled Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, son of the king of Bahrain, also has private Jiu-Jitsu lessons in his own palace in the small emirate.
As it appears, more Arabian royal families are falling in love with Jiu-Jitsu.
