Jodo is a school of Japanese martial art with Kata, formation of various movements.
This is an experiment for new artistic expressions based on Jodo, which has 400 long years of history.
I interviewed Daniel Pearson(The Capital Area Jodokai) , Richard Friman(Godaiko Jodokai) for
Jodo and Art 2011＠Special Lectures in Cultural and Human Information Studies I of The University of Tokyo.
I asked them. Do you believe Jodo can contribute to this modern world as is?
How does it influence your daily life?
For me, I do believe Jodo is an art on its own with“Kata”, and that Jodo can be applied to other forms of artistic expressions.
Do you agree? Any examples?
