"Who is Who" of the Munich "Hall of Honors"
the trend-setting martial arts event in Europe since 2008
Since Master Gregor Huss initiated the first "Hall of Fame of Martial Arts" in Munich, Germany, twelve years ago, many events of this kind have been founded all over Europe to this day and have contributed to making the martial arts even better known. Already in 2004, a hall of fame, the so-called "Hall of Fame", had been organized in London, but it had no major impact on the world of martial arts on the continent, as it was mainly seen as a local English event.
No event of this kind has so far received such a great response from the celebrities and legends of martial arts from Europe and the world as the "Munich Hall of Honors" over a long period of time. The elite of martial arts can not wait to come to Munich every year for the glamorous black and white gala, and to present themselves and their fighting styles in more than 30 free seminars. In particular, to honor their students and teachers for their achievements and services to a select audience and to enjoy with their partners the fantastic performances and the sumptuous buffet. Of course many celebrities were present in 2019 and most of them had been booking this event regularly for several years. In a sold-out event at the Hofbräukeller in Munich, the French concert flautist Raphaelle Zaneboni opened the gala evening after the meal and then the awards ceremony took place with many performances until late in the evening. It was another outstanding event that once again made history in the world of European martial arts.
In recent years, many celebrities of martial arts and fitness have been welcomed there, as well as the world-renowned queen of martial arts film Cynthia Rothrock (2012-2019) and the unbeaten multiple world champion in kickboxing and actor "the Dragon" Don Wilson (2018); as the keynote speaker in 2018 Dr. Robert Goldman , world record holder and founder of the "Sports Hall of Fame" (2016-2018), and actor and film director Kely McClung (2013) eleven times world champion boxing Daisy "The Lady" Lang (2018) actor Matthias Hues (2018/2019) Karate Diva and action superstar Karen Sheperd (2009/2010) Wushu legend Sifu Serge Seguin (2012-2019) GM Bram Frank (2008/2009) GM Sigfried Lory (2012) GM Geoff J.
