The capital city added another fixture to its martial arts calendar crown by being chosen as host of the 2015 International Judo Federation (ISF) World Youth Championship.
The youth event will be staged in tandem with the IJF Abu Dhabi Grand Slam at the IPIC Arena at Zayed Sports City next November. The UAE Judo and Kickboxing Federation (UAEJKF) also are hoping the world youth championship will pave the way for Abu Dhabi to host the IJF World Championship. “We are honoured and delighted to host this prestigious youth championship alongside the grand slam event next year,” said Mohammed bin Taloob Al Darai, president of the UAEJKF.
