Of the many prize packages available to win at the Abu Dhabi WPJJC Montreal trial in Canada on Feb. 22, most of them were nabbed by the lower belts. A lot of the trips required a medal in the weight division and then later in an open weight division that was split for lighter athletes and heavier athletes.

Those who successfully get the ticket gain a paid trip to the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship main event in Abu Dhabi in the UAE. The package includes flight, hotel and food.
