Iran to host Asian Judo Championships

The Judo Union of Asia has appointed Iran as the host of the Asian Judo Championships and the Asian Kata Tournament for the first time in the judo history of the country.

The Islamic Republic of Iran Judo Federation is scheduled to host these sports events on Kish Island located in the Persian Gulf in June 2024.

During the Asian Junior Championships 2023 in Uzbekistan’s Tashkent, President of the Iranian Judo Federation Arash Mir-Esmaeili held talks with President of the Judo Union of Asia Obaid Al-Anzi.

In this meeting, Mir-Esmaeili said that Iran is ready to host the Asian Judo Championships for youth and adult categories as well as the Asian Kata Tournament. Following precise studies, the Judo Union of Asia eventually agreed upon this proposal.
