This April 14 (2024) the city of Rome, Italy, will become jiu-jitsu’s capital for a day as the famous European metropolis is set to house one of the biggest events of the year, AJP’s Grand Slam. A tournament that is part of the federation’s global tour and will feature some of the biggest stars of gi jiu-jitsu in the world.

Over the past few years, the AJP tournament circuit has become the most important league in Europe, outpacing the IBJJF by tens of events per year in the Old Continent. That consistency reaches its peak with mega-production events such as the Grand Slams which are spread across the globe with shows in the Middle East, Asia, Europe, South America, and North America. These championships provide a great opportunity to climb the ranking of the AJP for a possible admission at the World Pro and offer cash prizes to the medalists, features that have captivated the interest of many top players of the professional division.

Among the big names to be performing in Rome, you will find World & Pan champion Diego Pato, ADCC Brazilian Trials winner Luiz Paulo, 2024 Pan Champions Uanderson Ferreira, Yatan Bueno, and Ingridd Alves, as well as Abu Dhabi World Pro winner Yuri Hendrex and the Armbar Queen herself, Julia Alves.

Rest assured that this event will have more than Brazilian stars, many of Europe’s finest will attend the ADGS Rome. That list will feature 2024 Pan sensation, Belgium’s Florian Bayili, Georgia’s Dzhimsher Razmadze – an athlete who has shown tremendous skill as of late, Ireland’s Jean Luca Maltese, as well as Fightzone London’s two aces, namely ADCC European Trials champion Nia Blackman and IBJJF World & European brown belt champion Laura Sieradzan who will be making her black belt debut in Italy.

The USA will also be well represented with Isaac Doederlein, Nick Salles,
