In the past couple years, we’ve heard about the World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship, which is sometimes referred to Abu Dhabi Pro. In the past, we have brought you coverage with interviews with Hillary Williams and Gabi Garcia. Today on the show we’re going to hear from one of the organizers, Fernando Paradeda!
This event holds regional qualifying jiu-jitsu tournaments around the world and pays for the winners to compete in the world championship in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. There is a complete list of this year’s events here on UAEJJ.com. If you are here in the United States, there will be qualifying events in New Jersey, Las Vegas, and San Diego very soon!
