On 16 October 2016, members of Hyoho Taisha ryu Dojo Yatsushiro Ryu-sen-kan demonstrated their skills at Hitoyoshi Culture Palace, Kumamoto, Japan.
This event was held for a charity purpose to assist reconstruction of Kumamoto area, where experienced major earthquakes this year and still recovering from the damage.
Master Yamamoto of the Dojo commented “martial arts demonstration is only what we can contribute, however, we do hope reconstruction of the area at the earliest possible date, and local people affected would have peaceful and ordinary life as before, as soon as possible”.
After the demonstration, Monjin (Dojo members) visited a tomb of their founder, Kurando Marume (丸目蔵人), and offered payers.
