I was rather excited to see that the results were posted. However, they seem to have forgotten the women all together. How can one of the world’s most prestigious tournaments “forget” to list the winners in the womens’ division. It’s adding insult to injury. You recall from a previous post that the women’s prize money amounts to about half of the mens. The men’s absolute black belt winner is awarded $30,000 and the women’s absolute black belt is awarded $3,000. Even the winner of the purple belt divisions are awarded $5000. Baffles the mind. So while the eventual winner in the male absolute won a total of $38,000 the female competitor walked away with a slick $8000. That’s incredible.
ADCC and UAEJJ I am totally disappointed in you. Why don’t you send an email to UAEjj.com and voice your opinion. I did for whatever it’s worth.
