Message from Ron Re: Powel Street Festival 2012

Our Dojo has been asked again this year to put on a demonstration of Iaido at the annual Japanese Festival known as the Powell Street Festival.The Festival will be held in Openheimer Park on Saturday,August 4th and Sunday,August 5th.Our Demonstration will take place on Saturday in the early afternoon-exact time to be included in an E-mail closer to the date of the Festival.

The Powell Street Festival is a lot of fun.You can see many types of Japanese Martial Arts demonstrated,watch dancers in traditional clothing,listen to music including Taiko Drummers,purchase Japanese goods,and try different kinds of Japanese food prepared and sold in the various food stalls on the streets surrounding the Park.

We have already started practicing for our Demonstration; so if anyone is interested in participating,they should endeavor to attend every Tuesday evening and Saturday morning class at UBC where we practice as a group doing trial performances.
