The brackets for the brown belt and black belt divisions at the 2014 WPJJC will be publicly drawn right after the athletes weigh in.
The event’s organizers announced today that no pre-separation of athletes will be made, which means athletes from the same team can be paired up even in their first match.
The action is taken to prevent close-outs in the finals.
The open drawing takes place April 16, at 7:30pm (Abu Dhabi time).
In the black belt open class divisions, Rodolfo Vieira and Marcus Almeida Buchecha in the male competition and Gabi Garcia in the female competition will have the right of place in the bracket as champions of the previous years.
The WPJJC also released the schedule for this year’s edition.
The 2014 WPJJC takes place on April 15 – 19.
