    Where can I get some info on this?

    Are the tournaments open to everybody? Are they trials for which event?

    some are open only to residents/citizens of the country.

    the tournaments listed are all qualifiers, some direct to the finals, some for georgraphic qualifiers (e.g. there will probably be a bunch of tournies in Europe then a European qualifier).

    the two last tournaments listed in Abu Dhabi are the finals.

    The other key question is what rules are they using for the No-Gi?

    It's a long way to go to do Gi AND No-Gi trials at each of the comps so will be interesting to see how they work it. @[email protected]

    They are open to everyone but you are not gettin the free ticket for the winner if you are not a resident/citizen of the country.

    the purple category is because the Sheik's son and most of the advanced students of his team are now purple.

    As far as I'm aware, not quite true.

    European trials, at least, there are some trials that are European only, and at least one (that I know of) that is supposed to be Open. So Brazilians would be allowed to enter and win that one, whilst the others would be limited to European passport holders only. So obviously guys who have dual passports can also cheat on that one, but those guys aside, ex-pats can still enter the Open Trials.

    Not sure how this works in US, Japan, etc.

    I know Non-US guys won in the US Trials last year, so I think they're fairly relaxed on that side of things too.

    Just what I know. Or think I know. @[email protected]

    Take care,

    Oli

    They are all open.

    I was talking about the free tickets and paid expenses that are awarded to winner of each open belt categories: white/blue, purple, brown/BB.

    In the past, people could fly in to AD as well without qualifying, will they allow it again this time?

    My guess is NOGI rules will still be under the IBJJF rules.

    Fair enough. I was speaking to the European organiser and he informed me that the UK trials would be European only, whilst the Portugal one was Open.

    ...maybe they've changed the plan? Shrug. @[email protected]

    And I think they'll still allow people to enter without qualifying. Most people aren't going to do it, and it makes it possible for the high level Brazilians to fight without worrying about a qualifier first.

    Take care,

    Oli
