Samurai! Museum field trip with Multnomah Aikikai

Field trip!

with the Multnomah Aikikai community!

Sunday December 8, 2013
We'll meet at 11:45am at the museum.

What to do:
Sign up through the dojo to join our group* and enjoy the discounted ticket rate of $16.

Multnomah Aikikai is planning a dojo trip to the amazing exhibit of samurai armor currently on display at the Portland Art Museum.  This is a really exceptional show, whether you are interested in martial arts, history, Japanese culture, technology or art and design.  It includes full size and fully armored horses and riders, an amazing array of different types and styles of armor from the 12th to the 19th centuries, as well as swords, bows and polearms.  Particularly in the later armor, made at a time when Japan was at peace, the amazing creativity of the artists is fully on display since the armor was designed more for spectacle than protection. 

Please see the following link for photos and more info:
This special event is the only west-coast venue for the exhibit, which comes from a single source, the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum in Hardwood, Texas.  Here’s a link
