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

Leaving Europe for what it is… at least for now

Since many people are wondering when the next BUDO GALA will take place and even wondering if BUDO GALA is still active…
Yes, we are still very much alive, BUDO GALA is gearing up and ready to take it to the next level!
It just takes a bit of time to get back to winning ways after the previous owner decided to take it easy for the last 10+ years.

– Back to the present though; we have decided to start focusing on the US for the next BUDO GALA.
Over the last 2 years we had quite a lot of changes going on behind the scenes, most recently we decided to get ourselves a US Region Manager.
So yes, we are leaving Europe for what it is, at least for the time being… simply because we are convinced that the US offers us many more opportunities to rebuild the BUDO GALA brand and get back to where we belong; at the very top that is!!
That doesn’t mean BUDO GALA turned its back on Europe, but it’s simply not our priority at this moment, only time will tell when we will return to Europe.
As it looks now and if everything develops as planned, our first US show should take place somewhere in between late 2015 and mid 2016.
