New York Shintaido to be Filmed for Documentary

Hi, everyone!!

Wow!!

We have a unique opportunity in NY next weekend on Saturday, August 21st, at 1:30PM.

A documentary film maker who is creating a piece about the various activities in Central Park has asked us if they can film our Shintaido keiko for their film. This is outstanding!!

The documentary is being filmed by a European TV company and an independent Austrian producer.
The film is scheduled to air on European TV in the Fall of 2005 in Austria, Germany, Italy and France.
We will be shown in a few short shots as part of a collage/montage piece highlighting the many activities in the Park.

Is this cool or what?!!

So if you are available next Saturday and would like to join us, please come and do keiko beginning at 1:30PM. Keiko will be from 1:30PM until 3:30PM in the East Meadow of Central Park. Please bring a bo if you have one.

The exact location is the same location we practice at each Sunday.

The entrance to the East Meadow is located just above 97th Street on 5th Avenue.

Please let me know if you will be joining us for this unique event.

Thanks!!

And many thanks to Ishii Sensei and Sumiko for practicing in our natural dojo this past Sunday in NY. Because of their keiko being seen by a representative for this film maker, we now have this incredible opportunity. Domo arigato!!

Be well and look forward to seeing you next weekend!!

Live and love in the light,
Jennifer
