CEBU, Philippines — The Overlimit Jiujitsu Academy Cebu and ATOS Jiujitsu dominated their respective events during the 2017 Dumau Philippine International Jiujitsu Open over the weekend at the Mountainwing of SM Seaside City.

Aside from the local grapplers, Dumau Open was participated in by elite fighters coming from Asia and United States.
