ASSJF is an international sports competition organized by the Asian Sport Jiu-Jitsu Federation. The event was also attended by jiu-jitsu practitioners from various countries, such as Korea, China, and Morocco.

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a largely ground-based martial art, using the principles of leverage, angles, pressure, and timing, as well as knowledge of human anatomy, to achieve non-violent submission of an opponent. Unlike other martial arts that focus on strikes and/or kicks, jiu-jitsu focuses on close contact "grappling" holds and techniques, and the use of chokes and joint manipulations.
