A total of 25 students who are part of the Jiu-Jitsu Universal Management Programme (JUMP) participated in the organisation of the Ju-Jitsu International Federation (JJIF) World Championships in Ulaanbaatar.

The JUMP is a joint initiative by the Mongolian Jiu-Jitsu Association in cooperation with the Mongolian University of Education, serving as a bachelor's degree programme for jiu-jitsu coaches and managers.

The course provides a sports management bachelor's degree and training in jiu-jitsu, and the Mongolian Jiu-Jitsu Association hopes it can set an example for other National Federations.

At the JJIF World Championships in Mongolia's capital, the 25 students going into the third year of the JUMP assisted with organisational elements.

This follows on from previous experience observing the organisation of international tournaments in South Korea, Russia and Thailand.

JUMP students' standard curriculum also includes modules such as psychology, anatomy and physiology, and physicality methodologies, with 15 extra modules including a driving class.

The programme aims for 80 per cent of participants to achieve an English level of higher than 5.0 on the International Language Testing System.

The United Arab Emirates topped the medals table at the JJIF World Championships earlier this month with eight golds.

Mongolia was staging the World Championships for the first time.
