Abu Dhabi turned out in great numbers to show their support for Palestine MMA. With Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu demonstrations, it was an opportunity for the public to get a taste of what we are all about, find out more about the benefits of getting involved in martial arts and get a glimpse into what our plans are for the future.

"It was great seeing so many young people out today" said Michael Dahdal, founder of Palestine MMA. "It is really all about the new generation, getting boys and girls engaged in meaningful activity, benefitting their health and wellbeing and feeling like they are part of a community and a movement, this transcends all languages, cultures and barriers and we also want Palestine to be included in that conversation" he added.

2016 is shaping up to be a big year for Palestine MMA as we try and raise around $200,000 to fund the development of a purpose built gym in the West Bank. It's time Palestine MMA had a home and we can't wait to inspire, promote and develop the next generation of Palestinian boys and girls.

A climb of Japan's Mount Fuji is being planned for July to raise awareness and help in reaching our funding target. If you are interested in participating, please contact us.

A big thank you to Primal Gym for being amazing hosts and showing their support and to Natural Kitchen for generously providing fresh, healthy and amazingly delicious salads to everyone.
