ADCC 2013 is quickly approaching; the event is being held this coming weekend in Beijing, China and some of the tops are already there or on their way. Last week, Leo Vieira and some of his Checkmat teammates arrived in Beijing and today, Andre Galvao and Rafa Mendes along with Gui Mendes and others are on a plane to Beijing. The early birds are looking to acclimate themselves to the local conditions and take away some of the jet lag so as to be even more ready for the tournament.
The majority of the competitors will arrive in Beijing on Thursday. Weigh ins are on Friday and competitions begins Saturday October 19, 2013
