Weight and open weight winner and big standout at the 2010 World Pro Claudio Calasans will see action at the San Diego qualifiers for the event. The Atos black belt is yet another beast confirmed to be there alongside Guilherme Mendes, Clark Gracie, Rodrigo Caporal and Joel Tudor, among others, at the event to take place March 5 and 6 at Point Loma High School.
February 28 is the cut-off for sign-ups for the event guaranteeing all-expenses-paid trips to thirteen winners of the adult division at April’s World Pro, as well as a ticket to Abu Dhabi for the No-Gi absolute winner.

“I want to advise people that they should sign up quickly, as there’s great demand and space is limited. And also to avoid any confusion. Our event is going to take place March 5 and 6. There’s an ADCC qualifier coming up, but it has nothing to do with our organization,” explains Fernando Paradeda.
