Abu Dhabi will again host a big international BJJ Cup. With a total cash prize of Us$38,000 (thirty eight thousand American Dollars), the Asian BJJ Super Cup gives more cash than any other BJJ tournament in the World right now. Dates are set for 12 and 13th of December.
The organiser, Carlos Santos, a black belt from Carlson Gracie that works with the royal family of the UAE, has been for many years in the region and over the time he managed to estimulate a huge growth to our sport. Besides the competitions, Carlos supervises a group of now 12 Brazilian BJJ black belts teaching the Army and schools.
This growth is spreading to other countries in the region, and with available flights to Abu Dhabi and Dubai from all over Europe, and the money prize, makes more sense to fly there than to cross the Atlantic to fight in California for medals.
