An old dream of the IBJJF team turns to reality in April of 2010. It has to do with the Jiu-Jitsu Pan – the most classic international Gentle Art event – returning to the gymnasium where it all started.
Spacious and inviting, fit for the scale of the event, which this year is to take place from the 8th to the 11th of April, in Irvin, California.
Since the first installment in 1995, in this very University of California Irvine gymnasium, to present day, the Jiu-Jitsu Pan has launched dozens of stars from the world of fighting. Xande Ribeiro, Roger Gracie, Frank Mir, Rogério Minotouro, Fabio Leopoldo, Fernando Margarida, Marcio Feitosa, Fabricio Werdum, Nino Schembri, Kron and Kyra Gracie, among other aces, all shot to international stardom among Jiu-Jitsu fans after competing at the Pan.
