Origins International Martial Arts Festival to Stage Huge End-of-Summer Tournament

Origins Events (Origins Productions LLC) will close out the summer with one of the biggest martial arts tournaments in the country. Origins and Disney combine forces to present the Origins International Martial Arts Festival, formerly the Disney Martial Arts Festival.

Disneyland in Anaheim, California will remain host of the festival which will run from August 25-28. As with festival tradition of recognizing different countries, this year's event will recognize Japan for their contributions to martial arts and world culture.

The Origins International Martial Arts Festival will hold competitions in over 2,500 divisions, from a long list of traditional martial arts divisions, Sumo, submission grappling, and many others.





Welcome to the 2011 Origins International Martial Arts Festival™ at Disneyland® Resort!

Martial Arts Enthusiasts, Family and Friends,

On behalf of the Happiest Place on Earth, Disney and Origins Events are excited to announce that the Disney Martial Arts Festival is being relaunched in 2011 as the Origins International Martial Arts Festival™ at Disneyland® Resort!

Many improvements are being introduced this year to make the festival even more exciting to martial arts athletes, family, and fans. Along with these enhancements, the new name better highlights the international scope of this event and our host - the Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim California!

This year kicks off a 10-year celebration that will recognize the outstanding contributions to the martial arts from countries across the globe. Each year will highlight a different country, their martial arts, and their important influence. In this inaugural year, the 2011 Festival recognizes Japan and Okinawa for their rich cultural heritage that they have shared with the world!

Our staff is committed to creating an atmosphere of sportsmanship and integrity, a competition that is fair and exciting, and a festival for all to enjoy and experience. We also recognize the dedication and passion of all the martial arts teachers that join us in support of their students. Lastly, we thank the families that continue to believe in the life-changing benefits of the martial arts.

Sincerely,

Anthony Marquez, Sr.
Executive Director, Origins International Martial Arts Festival™
CEO, Origins Events
