Taekwondo Arab Junior Championships in Fujairah—Full Programme

There have been three taekwondo events held in Fujairah this month and the Arab Junior Championships, held this week, is the last international taekwondo event in the emirate for the foreseeable future.

While the first two events focused on the training of referees and the updating of their skills, the event this week concentrates on the players and their competition on the mat.


His Highness, Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad Al Sharqi, the Crown Prince of Fujairah, has been the patron of these three taekwondo events and his generosity, especially in funding the Palestinian team to make it possible for them to travel to Fujairah has hit the news headlines in the Arab world.

His Highness will be attending the Opening Ceremony of the Arab Junior Taekwondo Championship.


The national teams from many different Arab countries are arriving at the Concorde Fujairah Hotel on Saturday and Sunday (18th-19th).

On Monday (20th) there are the technical meetings with referees and the weighing in of players (females and males).

Play gets underway on Tuesday (21st) with the Opening Ceremony scheduled for the evening.

On Wednesday competition continues and by the evening will finish with final matches, the awards ceremony, the formal dinner and the exchange of shields.

Thursday is a day to tour the emirate of Fujairah while on Friday the teams will depart Fujairah.


Welcome to all players and match officials to the emirate of Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates. May your stay be one of fun and challenge as you compete in the taekwondo championship.
