The Philippines and United Arab Emirates both excelled on the second day of the Ju-Jitsu Asian Championships as they recorded three gold medals each in Bangkok.

Margarita Ochoa began a brilliant day for the Philippines at Rangsit University here in Thailand's capital.

She downed Sinapore's May Yong in the women's under-48-kilograms final to take her country's first title of the Championships.

Ochoa made excellent use of her ground game as she exhibited her skill at trapping opponents into pin moves, with the rear naked choke being executed to perfection on multiple occasions during her run to glory.

South Korea's Kim Na-hyun shared the third step of the podium with Balqees Abdulkareem Abdoh Abdulla of the United Arab Emirates after the two were eliminated in the final four by the eventual finalists.

There was not long to wait before the second Filipino triumph as Annie Ramirez claimed the women's under-57kg crown in the next final.

She dominated Galina Duvanova of Kazakhstan for gold after Malaysia's Cassandra Poyong and Orapa Senatham of Thailand won the bronze medals.

The final victory for the Philippines came in the women's over-70kg category courtesy of Dylan Chrystle Reign Valmores.

She denied Thailand gold on what was a barren day for the hosts by beating Pornthip Chansonthi in the deciding bout.

Chansonthi's compatriot Nantina Namngam made up the podium with the bronze medal.

Following the women's bouts, the men's finals came around which were dominated by Emirati athletes.

There was a UAE one-two in the under-56kg class as Theyab Al Nuaimi beat Omar Al Suwaidi while Kazakhstan's Yernaz Myrzabekov and Jan Joon-hyuk of South Korea settled for bronze.

Mohamed Ali Al Suwaidi successfully defended his under-69kg title with a dramatic victory over Kazakhstan fighter Nurzhan Batyrbekov.

Al Suwaidi only managed to secure the win late on in a thrilling encounter which was preceded by bronze medal wins for South Korean Joo Seong-hyeon and Marc Alexander Lim of the Philippines.

A gold and silver finish was secured yet again by the UAE as Faisal Al Kitbi beat Saeed Hamad Taufiq Al Kubaisi in the under-85kg division.

It was an all-Middle East podium with Saudi Arabian Omar Tariq Nada and Ali Akbarpour of Iran winning bronze.

Despite not claiming any tournament wins today, Thailand still lead the medals table with 11 golds.

They are followed by Kazakhstan's four while the UAE pip the Philippines to third place by virtues of having three silver medals to none.

Competition is set to continue tomorrow in Bangkok with seven gold medals due to be won.
