Had a hectic day on Friday – myself and my martial arts group performed an ’embu’ or public demonstration in Dublin city as part of Culture Night. We did it three times during the evening, for around 150 people each time.
South Frederick Street was stuffed and it generally seems to have been well received. We were also filmed by RTE News and appeared live at 6pm and prerecorded at 9pm on Friday. The Irish Times and a few other papers mentioned us on Saturday as well. Which was nice.
We were joined by some fantastic taiko Japanese style drummers to provide a pounding back beat. All in all, I think it went pretty well.
