    The demonstrations were a big success again this year. We had to cut the demonstration short on Saturday due to rain - The Yagyu Shinkage ryu and Shinto Muso ryu portion of the demonstration were omitted. The Sunday demonstration drew a pretty large crowd and had demonstrations from all five groups. We had representatives from Massachusetts, Hawaii, New Jersey, Tennessee and Kentucky.

    Default Koryu demonstrations & events in USA

    FYI -- Missouri Botanical Gardens’ Japanese Festival: one of the few opportunities in the US to observe demonstrations by multiple koryu, coming up Labor Day weekend. http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.o...ryu-bugei.aspx

    Last year’s arts included Shinto Muso-ryu (and allied arts), Tenshinsho-den Katori Shinto-ryu, Yagyu Shinkage-ryu, Takeuchi-ryu, and Toda-ha Buko-ryu.

    Reminder: next weekend! If bringing family members along is an issue, there's plenty more to see and do. Kids' activities, sumo demonstration, ikebana and bonsai, things to buy and eat. Plus, you can't beat the setting.

    I can't agree with Beth enough. If you have never been to the festival I highly recommend you attend. The demonstrations alone are well worth the effort. However, when you combine the beauty of the location it becomes an event not to be skipped.

    Sadly due to some personal reasons I will be unable to attend this year. This will be the first year in several years that I will be missing.

    Default Koryu Bugei Demonstrations, St. Louis MO, 8/31-9/2 2013

    Labor Day Weekend:

    It's that time of year again -- Koryu Bugei demonstration, Japanese Festival, Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis, Missouri.

    Scroll back up thread for the usual lineup -- as has been said, this is one of the few opportunities on this side of the globe to see this many koryu together in one place.

    Plus, it's a fantastic garden, and a terrifically fun event.

    hi dears

    some questions about koryu bujutsu "katori shinto ryu"

    why is sageo of saya open in katori shinto ryu? not attaching to hakama(like Iaido)?

    why your hand before nukitsuke over (Vice versa) be tsuka?
    What is the reason?
    is this reason practical?

    thank you for answers

    Hello Hessam

    This question was already answered in the TSKSR thread.

    BTW, you need to use your full real name either in your profile or signature per our forum rules.

    Thanks,
