Hillary Williams at the 2010 Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship.
The United Arab Emirates was the place to be last week, where some of the world’s best Brazilian jiu-jitsu athletes met for the rare chance to compete for big dollar prizes. Like its no-gi cousin the Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Grappling Championship, the Abu Dhabi Pro is only possible because of the generous patronage of the Emirati Royal Family.
To get a little better idea of what the event was like, we will speak with BJJ brown belt Hillary Williams, who took third place in the under 63 kilogram female division. Hillary is one of the busiest BJJ athletes out there today, regularly competing on the global stage on the weekends while working on her undergraduate pre-medical classes during the week!
Cohost Dan and I will go over some listener e-mail and of course, review the most recent BJJ Poll data.
