10am: Samurai Arts (Demonstration by Guy McGowan)
Guy McGowan and Paul Gericke have a long history of martial arts practice. Since 2002, however, they have followed the more traditional Samurai Arts — predominantly Kenjutsu (Japanese swordsmanship) and Aikijujutsu (unarmed combat). At the Body & Mind Festival, Guy and Paul will demonstrate a few Kenjutsu and Iaijutsu kata (choreographed patterns of movement/techniques). In addition to the physical benefits of studying these practices in terms of self-defence applications, there are of course aspects of philosophy, self-discipline and personal growth to abundantly enhance one’s Way of Being.
Omote-no-kenjutsu (standard battlefield sword techniques); Gogyo-no-tachi (advanced techniques) and Battô-jutsu (sword draw techniques). NB: Subject to alterations in repertoire.
