I've been traveling through Japan the last couple of weeks and can't wait to share all of the exciting adventures from this beautiful country! It's a trip of a lifetime, and if you ever get an opportunity, go! I'm grateful that my hubby included me on this trip with Sake Brewery Tours! Our host, Etsuko Nakamura has been so helpful in organizing all of these unique excursions! We are on our way to becoming experts in the world of sake!
Here are a couple of videos of my latest workout discovery here! Who knew that taiko drumming could be such an incredible workout! It's so beautiful to watch!
Kodō is a professional taiko drumming group based in Sado Island, Japan. Getting trained by Kodō drummer master, Shinichi Sogo at the Sado Island Taiko Centre. The word Kodō, refers to "heartbeat" or "children of the drum."
It's important to get the right form locked in before pounding the drums. Some of the forms are similar to the ones I use in martial arts. It's all about playing from the core and putting your whole body into it, with a playful spirit :)
