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
