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

Event Questions

What has been your most successful show?
We have to say BUDO GALA 1994 has been our most successful so far.
It was held over the course of 3 days, with special guest Jean-Claude van Damme.
What has been your personal highlight?
Difficult to answer, since we enjoyed so many great moments over the last 25 years.
We don’t really have a specific preference of who we enjoyed working with most, but we can’t deny the fact that working with the likes of Jean-Claude van Damme, Chuck Norris, Bolo Yeung and Andy Hug has been an absolute privilege!
