Royal vision that led to growth of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Abu Dhabi and the World

A seven-month process hosted over six continents to qualify for the World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship in Abu Dhabi next month ended last week in Gramado, Brazil.

San Diego was one of the host cities to the trials not that long ago. That the southern California city is one of the host sites is entirely fitting.

Needless to say, once the time was close, I contacted a local store in Nashville, Tennessee to the get the scoop.
