About the Festival

The Martial Arts Festival was launched in 1985 as the “Martial Arts Night”. It’s aim was to put on a colourful and acrobatic show for the French public, by bringing the greatest masters from every martial art around the world together, once a year. In the intervening years, a wide variety of disciplines have been showcased at the Festival, from Kurash (Uzbek wrestling) to Tai Chi, and on to the hugely popular Karate and Krav Maga. The Martial Arts Festival is to thank for bringing major international masters to France for the very first time, including the Shaolin Monks (1989), the Masters of Okinawa Karate (1993), as well as great champions like Rickson Gracie (1995) and Jean-Claude Van Damme (1990).
