The second edition of the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo is confirmed with new date.
It will be on November 9 and 10, in Long Beach, California. The city’s Convention Center will host the show, which promises to bring the biggest stars of the sport and of MMA in free seminars, superfights, exhibitions, autograph sessions and BJJ Awards, with the election of the best of the sport today.
Professor Renzo Gracie, promoter of the event, held the first tournament round in May, 2011. Gracie says the new edition will have a much larger space and even more surprises for Jiu-Jitsu fans.
“We changed the date, originally scheduled for October, so it won’t conflict with the ADCC 2013 in Beijing”, says Renzo. “I’m particularly excited for the event this year. We will have an Open championship once again, and a GP for the black belts, which will be explosive.”
