Dojo members on July 26 performed a short Naginata demonstration at a CPAA art show showcase. The demonstration included a performance of shikake-oji, a short isshujiai match, and a short naginata jigeiko.
CPAA manager Ann Woo asked dojo members to introduce Naginata to the audience, because, she said, all of our practicing seems so interesting, but nobody who sees it really seems to know what we do.
This would be a great opportunity to show the world what you're all about, she said.
The demonstration was part of a larger program of performances that was held in conjunction with an art show and competition at the same venue. Other performances included chinese dance, ballet, vocalists, and ballroom.
