Tangoubukan members assisted NCNF sensei Chad Goerzen for a demonstration at the San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival on April 9. On a wet and slippery floor due to the falling rain, Xinyuan Lai performed with Goerzen as TGBK sensei Martin Nobida described the history, technique, and philosophy of modern naginata to the audience.
The demonstration was the second performance this season in which Tangoubukan members were asked to help bring exposure to the art.
The first demonstration was held at California State University, Fresno. In the coming weeksm additional events include an introductory seminar for the members of the Kamishin Dojo in Vacaville, a demonstration at the Cupertino Cherry Blossom Festival, a demonstration at a Bay Area universities kendo godogeiko, and a possible NCNF spring seminar.
Anyone wishing to learn more about the events should contact the dojo through this website.
