San Diego, it is a beautiful Southern Californian city with a large Brazilian community and a strong BJJ culture.  The city has all the credentials to be an important locale in the NABJJF tournament circuit.

This is our third event in San Diego and I believe we’re going to have a special edition”, Aschidamini said.
