The INPEX Group co-hosted the second Judo Japanese Ambassador’s Cup tournament in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in partnership with the UAE Wrestling, Judo & Kick Boxing Federation and the Embassy of Japan in the UAE on November 3, 2017.
The tournament was organized with the aim of contributing to the development of Judo as well as the education of future generations in the UAE. The tournament was open to junior athletes representing Judo clubs from all seven emirates in the UAE, and involved approximately 60 participants who competed before an audience that included H.E. Kanji Fujiki, Japanese Ambassador in the UAE. The tournament also featured an exhibition match between a female judo wrester representing the UAE national team and a Japanese female judo wrester.
Going forward, INPEX will continue contributing to the local communities in the UAE including through such promotion of sports.
