Budô: let’s meet at the tatami!

Since 2019, the Budô Area is welcoming you in the Palais des Congrès at Marseille Chanot: a perfect place with a perfect atmosphere to host the Budô Area program, organized by local martial art clubs. Two tatami are dedicated to demonstrations and initiations: if you want to know what shôrinji kenpô looks like or try aikidô or karate, you’ve found the place!


The attending clubs welcome you all day long to share their expertise and initiate you to varied disciplines. They all propose demonstrations and initiations on the tatami.

Whether you’re the sporty type or not, the Budô Area is one of the essential stop in your visit at Japan Expo Sud. Admire the experts practice and if you feel like it, try your first kata (martial art movements) with themm. Great for kids and adults alike!
