Calling Under 18s for First Youth MMA World Championships

Competitor registration will open on Monday 22 April for the 2019 IMMAF – WMMAA Youth MMA Championships.

The inaugural under-18s tournament will take place at the PalaPellicone in Rome over the weekend of 3 to 4 August, with Check-In Day on 2 August. Those interested in competing should apply through their national affiliated federation.

Unified world MMA governing body, IMMAF – WMMAA, recently published its Youth MMA rule sets in February, following a unanimous board decision to disallow head strikes for under 18s.

The rules see a modification of the IMMAF – WMMAA Amateur MMA Rules with respect to the physiological development of the following three age categories, as advised by IMMAF – WMMAA’s expert medical, coaching and regulatory committees.

  • IMMAF Youth A 16-17s (U18)
  • IMMAF Youth B 14-15s (U16)
  • IMMAF Youth C 12-13s (U14)
