With the main event approaching the level of interest is greatly rising and a lot of confusion and misinformation about the process of entering the event is floating around. First, competing in any event other than the ADCC trials does not guarantee entry into the main event. No organization is favored, all competition results are treated equally!
Second, there is no fast track to entering the ADCC and no one other than the ADCC Committee through Guy Neivens, can confirm or guarantee your entry into the main event. So it pays to remind everyone that there are only two ways to enter the event:
HOW TO APPLY?
The best way to enter the competition is to win one of the regional Trial competitions that are scheduled. There are only 4 trials left: Brazil, Europe Finals, Japan and Australia. The champions from the 2005 competition are also invited back.
Accomplished martial artists should apply directly for entry. To apply directly, send a complete resume to ADCC Coordinator Guy Neivens at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the women’s divisions send a complete resume to the ADCC’s North American Spokesperson Miguel Iturrate at email@example.com.
