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

Taekwondo /ˌtaɪˌkwɒnˈdoʊ/ or /ˌteɪˌkwɒnˈdoʊ/ (Korean 태권도 (hangul) / 跆拳道 (hanja), [tʰɛk͈wʌndo]), also known as Taekwon-Do and Tae Kwon Do, is a Korean martial art.
It combines combat and self-defense techniques with sport and exercise.
Gyeorugi (pronounced [kjʌɾuɡi]), a type of sparring, has been an Olympic event since 2000.
Taekwondo was developed by a variety of Korean masters during the 1940s as combination of Okinawan Karate, Chinese martial arts, and the ancient Korean traditions Taekkyeon and Gwonbeop.
