From Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu, Kondo Masayuki Hombucho and 7 members including myself performed the demonstration under Kondo Katsuyuki Somucho watched as an exwcutive director of Japan Kobudo Promotion Society.
This histrical event has been held for the first time in about 4 years due to the pandemic. Despite the stormy weather that lasted until the morning of the day, 269 people from 49 schools gathered from all over Japan, and the venue was filled with enthusiasm. We were able to show both inside and outside that Japanese kobudo is still alive after overcoming the pandemic and continues to develop more.
