Upcoming Demo at the Japanese Festival In Saint Louis Missouri

Every year TKRI folks from all over get together to demonstrate karate at the annual Japanese Festival in the Missouri Botanical Gardens in Saint Louis Missouri. This year the festival falls on the weekend of September 5-7th. We are hard at work preparing our demonstration, though folks are a little more scattered than they have been in years past so there are going to be some challenges.

The Japanese Festival in Saint Louis is one of the premiere such festivals in the U.S.  Martial artists will want to make it a point to see the Koryu Bugei demonstrations by martial artist and author Dave Lowry and his colleagues. There is always great food available and demonstrations of ceramics, chado (tea), dance, and even sumo.

If you are within traveling distance of Saint Louis please consider coming down and spending a day or two taking in the sites. Here is a link to the schedule of events for the festival:
