The World Martial Arts Symposium

The Salle Saint Louis helped establish the WMAS in St. Louis in partnership with Saint Louis University Karate. The goal of the WMAS was to bring together artists from many diverse martial art systems to colaborate, share, and discover our similarities and differences. The three years of the WMAS were immensely successful, bringing together artists from Eastern and Western traditions. 

The Salle hopes to re-initiate the WMAS tradition in the near future. Stay tuned for more information for a future WMAS.
