ADCC West European Open 2024

September 14

Hey there! Are you ready to hear about something super cool happening in 2024? It’s the ADCC West European Open, and it’s going to be on UFC Fightpass. So, let’s dive into what this all means and why you might want to check it out or even join in!

First off, ADCC stands for Abu Dhabi Combat Club. It’s a big name in the world of grappling and martial arts, hosting competitions where people from all over the world come to show their skills in wrestling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, judo, and more. You can find all the rules on their official website if you’re curious or thinking about joining.

Now, the cool part is, this event is open to anyone in the world. That’s right, no matter where you’re from, you can join! They have different categories for men, women, and even kids, so there’s a place for everyone. For adults, they have categories based on age like Masters 1, 2, and 3, and for the young fighters, there are age groups from 7-8 years old all the way up to 15-17 years old.

If you’re wondering which division you should join, it depends on your experience. They have divisions for beginners, intermediates, advanced, and even professionals. So, if you’ve been training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, wrestling, judo, or similar martial arts, there’s a spot that fits your skill level. Just remember, once you compete at a certain level, you can’t move back down to an easier one.

When you go to compete, make sure you’re in the right age group. You have to be the age you say you are on the day of the tournament, and they’ll check your age when you weigh in. Speaking of weighing in, you only have to do it once, right before you compete. And there’s no wiggle room on the scale, so make sure you’re on weight!

The day starts early with doors opening at 8:30 in the morning, and the first matches kick off at 10:00. If you’re competing, you need to weigh in at least an hour before your bracket starts. They’re planning to wrap everything up by 7:00 PM, but it might go later, so keep that in mind for your travel plans.

Coaches, don’t worry, you haven’t been forgotten. For every five students you bring from your academy, you get a free coach pass. Just remember, the more competitors you bring, the more coach passes you get.

A couple of no-nos to remember: no close-outs, which means teammates can’t avoid fighting each other, and no sandbagging, which means competing in a lower skill level or younger age group than you should. Breaking these rules could get you banned from future ADCC events, so play fair!

So, whether you’re a seasoned fighter or just starting, the ADCC West European Open in 2024 is something you won’t want to miss. Get ready to see some amazing matches, and maybe even step on the mat yourself!
