Martial Arts Festival

Hello everyone, wow, I go away on a course for the weekend, comeback and everythings changed Anyways, I hope this is the right place to post this:

On saturday the 15th of May our club is hosting the fourth annual international festival of martial arts ( long title, I know), it's for a good cause as all profits are in aid of Cancer Research UK.

For anyone whose interested heres the details:

Venue: Seaburn Leisure Centre, Sunderland.

Date: Saturday the 15th of May.

Time: 11am - 4pm

Adults: 3.50p

OAP's & Under 14's: 2

The martial arts featuring are as follows: Aikido Jujitsu, Judo, Taekwondo, Karate, Kickboxing, Aikijitsu, Jeet Kune Do, Wrestling, Kenjitsu, Jojitsu, Fencing, Wing Tai Chuan Gung Fu, Shorinji Kempo, Awase, Suburi-kumitachi waza.

We are currently running around like headless chickens trying to get this sorted out and we would love it if as many people as possible could attend. If you want to come along it's always a fun day and we are thinking about having a beach party on the night time to celebrate, the more the merrier (weather permitting of course). So if you want to know anymore then you can contact us several ways:

Either visit our club forum: www.zanshinaikidouk.net

Email the event organiser Peter Seth: psethp@yahoo.co.uk

It's a little outside of my neighborhood, but sweet! Great idea.

Re: Martial Arts Festival

Thanks for the support Chris! Its just a shame that we live in such an out of the way part of England, if we were in London we would attract more people im sure, but we do the best we can.

Re: Martial Arts Festival

Hi Mr. Simpson

We have started a similar practice in Hakodate. We have a Martial Arts Demonstration of the various Japanese arts. (I live in Japan) We have it outside in the old Historic Fort and it is free. I hope to put the video of it on the net sometime soon.

Re: Martial Arts Festival

Funny you mentioned about a Martial Arts Festival, as my Sensei informed his classes that he has been approached by an organiser of suct an event and asked if he could represent Aikido, which he gladly excepted, but hasn't been given the final date of when the festival is to be held. All I know is it will be late July or early August in Reigate, Surrey.

As mentioned in the beginning thread, all types of Martial Arts are going to attend, the weather should be good so hopefully there will be a good crowd to watch etc.

Re: Martial Arts Festival
