Professor Franca is organizing the Abu Dhabi Pro West Coast Trials. This tournament takes place Sunday, January 24, 2010, at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium in Santa Cruz, California.
This is a qualifying event for the richest and most prestigious Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu event in the world, the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Cup 2010.
That event takes place April 15-17 in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, and will distribute the biggest prize in the history of Jiu-Jitsu, US$150.000.
Nine qualifiers from the West Coast Trials will be flown to Abu Dhabi to represent the U.S. at the Abu Dhabi Pro Jiu-Jitsu Cup.
In our interview with Professor Franca, we discuss the significance of the West Coast Trials and this event, the rules, the many levels of competitors expected to compete, the enormous growth in the popularity of jiu-jitsu, whether jiu-jitsu can establish itself as a professional spectator sport, how to get more information about this event, and more.
More information on the many international qualifying events for the Abu Dhabi Pro Jiu-Jitsu Cup can be found on the Emirates One News and the ADCC News.
