    Don't mean to dissapoint, but I don't think there is going to be a masters division. I think only Adult divisions, but I don't know for sure.

    Anyway, I plan to compete. Brown, heavy.

    Also Carlos Gracie Jr (I think in Gracie Mag) said he wanted to go somewhere and keep it there for a few years and then move to a different local and take Worlds all over the world.
