’17 Japanese Fall Festival a success!

Thank you so much to everyone that made the 22nd annual Japanese Fall Festival a success! We could not do it without each and every one of you!

The 2017 event featured beautiful weather and cross-cultural opportunities for all ages. We are proud to split the proceeds of the festival with the Springfield-Greene County Park Board. They use their portion to fund park maintenance and improvements while we use our portion to support our cultural programs throughout the year.

    The demonstration at San Antonio’s Aki Matsuri Nippon Budo Seishin-Kan went quite well, the students did an outstanding job of representing our dojo. It was an excellent opportunity for our dojo members to perform in public and test their mettle. Although it was the last performance of the day, and the audience was beginning to leave, the demonstration was very well received by the attendees. The highlight of the Demonstration was the excellent execution of the Mus? Jikiden Eishin-ry? sword techniques at full speed and power by Pellman Shihan. The crowd hushed of their own accord to hear the tachikaze, or “sword wind (swish)” generated by the sword master.
    Our sincere thanks to Pellman Shihan, John Mills Sensei, Kim Mills, James Mills, Nathan Mills for representing our dojo admirably!
