Black belt Fernando Paradeda is responsible for three of the five-star qualifiers providing all-expenses-paid trips to the Abu Dhabi World pro. The first of them starts January 29 in Las Vegas. And preparations for the event including a seminar by Carlson Gracie black belt Zé Mario Sperry are at full throttle.
“Spots in some of the divisions in Las Vegas will run out before the sign-up deadline, January 27. Demand is high,” he warns. Click here for further information.
The second tryout organized by Paradeda will take place March 5 and 6 in San Diego, California. Registration begins February 1. Click here to find out more.
Furthermore, the Gramado, Brazil, tryouts (www.abudhabiprojj.com.br) are set for March 19 and 20.
Paradeda’s tryouts have some differentiating factors, like no-gi matches (worth a trip to Abu Dhabi) and parallel events for kids and master and senior division athletes. In all, thirteen champions will earn a trip to the main event in Abu Dhabi with all expenses paid, not to mention cash prizes. Counting all the rewards, each qualifier will pay out a total of eighty thousand dollars in cash and prizes to its participants. The events will also be broadcast live. Sign up now!
