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

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.
