Professional Trial Information

This is the ONLY East Coast Qualifier and the ONLY qualifier this year

How do you compete in the Trials and what is considered a professional?

The Trials are only no-gi.  Technically, if you compete in the advanced division at any no gi tournament that is considered the professional division.  So if you want to challenge yourself, step-up to the advanced/professional division and see if you can qualify for the world championship by winning your division.

All winners automatically qualify for the world championships in your division and you will represent North America.  Therefore, you must have a valid passport when you compete or you cannot enter the trials (this does not include amateurs).

Professionals are also welcome to stay and compete in their respective gi divisions for free
