It’s been 23 years already… at the time I was attending numerous gala’s and I have kept an excellent memory of this trip to Dortmund. A warm welcome, a very professional and passionate organisation, a very diverse program and prestigious athletes. That year, I had the pleasure to perform on the same stage as the fabulous Jean Frenette from Quebec. Good continuation, and sincere friendships developed ever since. - Eric Pariset

Martial Art Styles

Background info, origins, and other interesting facts…

The following list will give you an insight in various different martial art styles, and gives you a more in depth view of what each style tries to represent, and where it has its roots.
This should help you to form a better idea of what the differences between the various styles really are.
This list is by no means a complete list of ALL the martial art styles out there, instead we choose to keep it a minor list covering only the styles that we consider to be reasonably known.

* Please note, we use Wikipedia as the source for generating ALL info on each of the style-pages.
Therefore we are not to be held responsible, for any possible inaccuracies.
Also, most of the pages although available, are not yet completed (WIP – Work In Progress)… we will continue completing those pages bit by bit when time allows us.
