One month to Abu Dhabi Cup

Tournament to give US$ 33,000 in prizes

The Abu Dhabi Cup is one month away. On May 8th and 9th, Carlao Santos, head coach of Emirates BJJ Team and GMA member in the UAE, will host the event that has all the chances to be the most attractive prizes-like for athletes in 2008. The Abu Dhabi International Cup has the patronage of Sheikh Zayed Bin Mohamad Bin Zayed Al Nahayan, Jiu-Jitsu ambassador in that country.


The prizes at AD reaches US$ 33,000. The open class alone will give away US$ 2,000 prizes. Competitions will be divided in two skill levels (white + blue belts and purple+brown+black belts) and 15 weight divisions. Carlao said why events in the UAE are always so attractive: “Here Jiu-Jitsu is seen in a different way from Brazil. Here the entire royal family practices it.” Registrations cost US$ 20 and can be done on line at the following websites: adcup.blogspot.com (http://www.adcup.blogspot.com/), emiratesone.blogspot.com (http://www.emiratesone.blogspot.com/).
