I have performed on the BUDO GALA stage numerous times, each time the event has left a fantastic lasting memory for me. The shows are put together and promoted to the highest level, allowing unique opportunities for martial artists from all over the globe to showcase their skills and amazing talent to the public eye. The communication between performer and promoter is second to none and you are treated with the highest respect. The passion that Richard Vos and his team bring to each project is unbelievable, they are always pushing the boundaries and keeping one step ahead of the game. This is why BUDO GALA promotions have lasted so long and will still be here for many more years... - Joe Hallett
Entering a World of Perfection
Bringing Martial Arts to a whole new Level

BUDO GALA® is the world’s #1 martial arts festival, not to focus on fighting, but bringing martial arts under the audience’ attention by showing the beauty of the art due to demonstrations.
These short demonstrations are performed, guided by music (most of them synchronized to the music), adding a whole new dimension to the term ‘martial arts’.

Regarding the different martial art styles that we cover; Judo, Karate, Kung Fu, Pencak Silat, Taekwondo, and anything you could possibly think of as long as it fits within the category ‘martial arts’…
It is our aim to present the audience with a beautiful show, and introduce them to the beautiful techniques of the various martial art styles, and through that way give them an inside view into the mystic world of martial arts.

And the best thing is; YOU can be there live!
