Another repost from the blog of Chicago Aikido Club (CAC). Me and some of my fellow members performed an aikido demonstration as part of the cultural program for the first-ever Illinois Japan Bowl on Saturday, March 7, 2015.

The Japan Bowl is a competition for high school students, in which three-person teams are tested on their knowledge of Japanese language and both traditional and modern Japanese culture. The winning team will go on to participate in the National Bowl in Washington, D.C., as part of 200 students from over 30 high schools across the U.S.
