NATIONALITY RESTRICTIONS FOR JJ TRIALS


I've gotten a few inquiries regarding registration for the WORLD PROFESSIONAL JIU-JITU CHAMPIONSHIP TRIALS (CH). Besides registering for this event which is in roughly 2x weeks, there are restrictions to the nationalities that can participate and go on to compete in Abu Dhabi. I was recently given the list of qualifying areas. If you are an expatriot living and working in these areas but do not hold a greencard, then you are not eligable.

The athletes  of following nationalities: 7

Not eligible to compete or not able to receive the prize money and plan tickets if we win?

It's my understanding that you will not be able to register without qualifying under the listed nationalities. I have also been informed if you're an expatriot but have a greencard in a listed country, you are eligible but have also been given word that may not be 100% true.

Bottom line, to enter you must be from the list of countries for this given area/trial.

Japan is the 2nd country listed, just under Afghanistan.
