Festa 2023

19th YUSHINMON Festa 2023
~Reverence for My Master and New Challenges~

November 12, 2023. 12:30 p.m. At: Yoyogihachiman Community Center

We've successfully held the 19th 'Festa 2023 (Reverence for My Master and New Challenges).' Unlike a competition, this event became a stage where everyone from various DOJOs shone as the main character, showcasing their unique traits. We believe we presented the best demonstrations as a grand finale to the year.
The opening special demonstration featured middle school black belt representatives performing GOJUSHIHO, BASSAI, and BŌ-JUTSU. These performances were enhanced with the unique creativity of our SOKE, turning out to be exceptionally splendid.
This time, we divided DOJOs into groups, with each designing and presenting their own compositions.
The 'Matatabi' A Capella group from Tokai University made a refreshing appearance during showtime, with seven students creating a brisk, rejuvenating breeze with their performance.
The highlight was the SŌKE's exclusive demonstration of three IAI KATA: SHOHATTŌ, SHIPPŪ, and IN'YŌTŌ. It's pretty rare to see our SŌKE's skills up close, and the tension and overwhelming spirit in the room were palpable.
A heartfelt thanks to all the parents and participants for their understanding and cooperation. As members and family of YUSHINMON, we're grateful for such an enjoyable day. Below, we've posted photos from Festa. We invite you to relive the thrilling moments of the day.
Also, we're planning to bring Festa to New York in the near future.
※Keep an eye out for upcoming videos and heartfelt comments from our amazing parents and participants.
