The Spirit of Budo, National Art Museum 26 June 2012

Aikido

Spirit of Budo is an exhibition of Japan Martial Arts. It was quiet on a weekday morning at the National Museum.  There are lots of exhibits, like Kendo, Judo, Karate, just to name a few.
I have always been wanting to let the kids pick up a martial art and waiting patiently for their cue to start one. 

Bamboo bows.

This video left the kids in awe, seeing women sumo wrestlers and some other ladies' participation in all sort of martial art.

God knows how heavy this intricate costume is.
