The organizer of three Abu Dhabi World Pro tryouts, Fernando Paradeda annouunces some news from the events. Both for the qualfiers organized by the black belt and the main event in the United Arab Emirates, the athletes will earn money.

“This time, besides in Gramado, I’m responsible for tryouts in other Jiu-Jitsu hubs. I’m organizing events in San Diego, a city where some of the United States’ biggest teams are, and Las Vegas, a worldwide reference when it comes to fighting,” he tells GRACIEMAG.com.

Like all the other five-star tryouts, the three guarantee travel and board for the winners of the five brown/black belt divisions; to two purple belt competitors (lightweight and heavyweight absolutes); to two white and blue belts (light and heavyweight absolutes); to two female purple, brown, and black belts; and to two female white and blue belts; as well as five thousand dollars in prize money for the men’s absolute brown and black belt division.

The difference this time is that running parallel to these qualifiers will be versions for the World Pro Kids, as this event will take place during the World Pro. The same goes for the Abu Dhabi World Pro Masters and Seniors, for athletes over thirty-two years of age. Regarding the Masters and Seniors, the black belts tryouts will reward prize money.

And lastly, there will also be a parallel no-gi tournament, since the Abu Dhabi No-Gi World Pro will see its maiden event. For this tournament – divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced divisions – rewards one ticket (without board) to the No-Gi World Pro to the winner of the advanced absolute, as well as awarding money prizes to the winners of the weight divisions.

“Each of the qualifiers will distribute a total of 80 thousand dollars in prizes. It will be awesome,” adds Paradeda.
