This event is happening a couple of streets away from me. I draw your attention to the four famous guests in the last paragraph, suggesting as I do so that one of these things is not like the others:
MAF-UK is set to be one of the largest and most interactive Martial Arts events ever to hit the UK, and is proud to be bringing together a unique blend of both the traditional and modern martial arts from all corners of the globe for this very special two day event.
MAF-UK will be host to numerous activities throughout the 2 day festival including the Martial Arts Freestyle UK Open Championships, the British Arnis Alliance Championship, and a Full Contact Fight Night.
