May 28, 2012 - PRLog -- May 24, 2012 Geneva, Switzerland – Due to some unforeseen irregularities, the World Martial Arts Games Committee (WMAGC) announces that the 2012 World Martial Arts Games will be re-located to Bregenz, Austria.  The Games will take place at the Bregenz Schendlingerhalle, August 10,11,12, 2012. The games will feature Chinese, Japanese & Korean style forms divisions as well as Kickboxing and Grappling events.   Austrian National WMAG Director Harald Falladori will oversee the event.

“We are very proud that Austria has been given the opportunity to host the 2012 World Martial Arts Games“, says Harald Falladori, Austrian National WMAG Director, “The city of Bregenz is known around the world as a festival city (Bregenzer Festspiele).  But this year Bregenz will also be known as a city of martial arts athletes.  I am looking forward to presenting this year’s games in my own birthtown and I promise that our team will do everything possible to make this an event to remember!“

"We had to move quickly to ensure the smooth re-location of this year’s event”, says Ken Marchtaler, WMAGC President, “Despite the tight timeframes, the Australian National Martial Arts Games Committee led by Harald Falladori have moved with lightning speed.  Within a week they have secured the Venue as well as provided a number of Hotel options.  And judging by the feedback so far, our athletes are receptive to the move and looking forward to a great event!"
