Federation of Gay Games - 2010 games, Germany, Europe

Could this be also opportunity for savate?

Ambassador of Gay Games: Elton John

The biggest sports and cultural festival in the world will take place in Cologne from July 31 to August 7, 2010. Some 12,000 participants from more than 70 countries will converge for the Gay Games VIII Cologne 2010 and celebrate the principles of participation, inclusion and personal best.
The motto is “Be part of it!” And the invitation is open to everyone – regardless whether you are heterosexual or homosexual, male, female, transgender or transsexual, and regardless of religion, nationality, ethnic heritage, political convictions, athletic skills, physical capabilities, age or physical condition.

Martial Arts is a special sport at the Cologne Gay Games: an event with respect and courtesy, and a competition with seminars.
We’re expecting 150 participants. The event will be held at the Hockey-Judo-Zentrum of the Deutsche Sporthochschule Köln in the Sportpark Muengersdorf.
The Martial Arts event invites participants of all styles to Cologne. Taekwondo, karate, ju jutsu, kung fu, aikido, and even tai chi chuan: all offer an opportunity to measure skills and exchange experiences. The fundamental idea of respect, courtesy, self-discipline, solidarity and fun is not just for the athletes, but also carries over to the audience and generates a special atmosphere. In addition we will also be offering seminars for the curious, whether beginners or more advanced martial artists.
