Competitors will have to decide whether they will opt to compete in the U.S. Open XVI in San Jose, California OR head over to the San Diego trials for the World Pro Championship. Both of which are scheduled for the same October 15/16 weekend.
The Abu Dhabi World Pro JiuJitsu Championship is different than, but often confused with the ADCC Championships (Abu Dhabi Combat Club- ADCC). Unlike the Abu Dhabi World Pro JiuJitsu Championship, the ADCC is a no-gi submission championship ONLY and is held every two years, with finals taking place in a different worldwide city. This year's ADCC Championship will take place in Nottingham, England, September 24-25.
