It is that they enjoy MMA as purely entertaining and non-competitive entertainment. Whether it’s decided or they want to try to compete, it provides an awareness of their progress. For the latter group of children and teenagers, the 2021 Youth World Championship is their first international. It can be a competitive experience in. Therefore, it is important to comply with the requirements of international sports and youth policies and implement safety standards. ”“ Towards the Youth World, for the All Nations We will be hosting a series of webiners in which we will explain the scoring process and answer your questions. “

The quality of future talent will improve through competitive amateur and professional sports ranks. “
