Master Takahiro Yamamoto, head of the Hyoho Taisha-ryu Dojo Yatsushiro Ryusen-kan joined an international martial arts event held in Osaka, Japan on 10th and 11th October 2014. He demonstrated Taisha-ryu skills and techniques in front of an audience from various backgrounds, including martial artists from France.
Organizers of this event also provided a very unique opportunity for martial arts and Samurai lovers – re-enactments of real Sengoku Jidai (Warring States period) battles with Japanese armor (see below photo). Anyone older than 15 years old was welcome to join the event and approximately 100 people, including 22 martial artists from France attended.
