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


On 25 and 26 November, we organised an other BUDO GALA.
The event took place in the Westfalenhallen in Dortmund, and the Rudi-Sedlmayer-Halle in München, Germany.
It had been 2 action packed evenings, showing a very high performance level by some of the worlds’ best martial artists such as; Jean Frenette, Ernie Reyes’ West Coast Demo Team, Mike Chat, Dr. Keun Tae Lee, Jimmy Pham, Milco Lambrecht, Toshishiro Obata, Fumio Demura, Michele Krasnoo, just to name a few… and many, many more!

* Special guest appearances were done by no other than Cynthia Rothrock, Richard Norton and Kathy Long.

– Hereby we would like to personally thank everyone involved; crew members, all the athletes who performed on top of their game, sponsors and other partners for making it such a successful event.

* And last but not least a massive “THANK YOU” goes to the audience… because without the audience there would be no BUDO GALA!
