On Sunday, Oct. 20 the last of the American trial winners will be chosen. Only given two chances on the west and east coast, this is the last opportunity to win a free, all-expenses paid trip to Abu Dhabi for the main event in 2014.
In previous years athletes from white to black belt earned their place in the roster for the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship but winning a local tournament months prior. At the main event in April of 2012, competitors experienced the United Arab Emirates, competed alongside a slew of international Jiu-Jitsu athletes and some came home with thousands of dollars in cash prizes. Don’t miss your chance to do the same for 2014.
The price is $125 and for various divisions you must win at weight and also win the open weight divisions, which are divided into light and heavy. For black belt males and the brown/black belt female categories you only need to win the weight divisions. The open weight categories, however, offer a cash prize as well.
