This year the International MMA Federation (IMMAF) and World MMA Association (WMMAA) will complete the inaugural Cadet & Pre-Junior Amateur MMA World Championships, welcoming national teams from across the globe to compete in Rome, Italy.
The forthcoming announcement of tailored Cadet & Pre-Junior rules will cater to numerous age groups spanning athletes of 12-17 years of age, set to take place 3-4 August and hosted by the Italian Grappling and Mixed Martial Arts Federation (FIGMMA).
After joining the IMMAF in 2018 with co-recognition, following the amalgamation of IMMAF and WMMAA, the Mixed Martial Arts Federation of the Republic of Tajikistan is among the group of national federations to have established a head start as we approach the ground breaking international cadet and pre-junior event. Similar to a number of international counterparts, Tajikistan’s government backed regulatory body first established its own domestic competition platform for athletes under the age of 18, back in 2014, and has continued to provide experience opportunities for young athletes ever since.
