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

BUDO GALA 2010 (Switzerland)

On both 28 and 29 May, there was an other BUDO GALA.
The event took place in the St. Jakobshalle in Basel, Switzerland.
It has been an action packed weekend, covering 2 eventful evenings, showing a very high performance level by some of the worlds’ best martial artists such as; Bruce SISTAZ, Swisstricks, the original Shaolin Monks from China, Horst Baumgürtel, just to name a few… and many, many more!

* Special guest appearances were done by no other than Hollywood action stars Jean-Claude van Damme, Bolo Yeung (who played the part of Chong Li, in Bloodsport), and Hong Kong action star Jon Foo.

– 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!
