BREAKING NEWS!!! 1ST ASIAN MARTIAL ARTS GAMES 2009: BANGKOK, TH

The very first Asian Martial Arts Games will take place in Bangkok, Thailand from April 25-May 3. The event is projected to bring in 2,500 people from 45 countries to compete in the following martial arts:

Karate

Taekwondo

Muay

Kickboxing

Jujitsu

Judo

Kurash

Wushu & Kung Fu

Pencak Silat


I am assuming 'Jujitsu' is referring to traditional and not Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Am not sure the ruling body for which arts was included in this but I'm sure you, the BJJ community, would have some different choices, hehe. For those interested in sharing their opinion and not just on this blog, I give you their contact information.
