Taiko Drumming has much in common with the martial arts, both in movement style and in training approach. While it is most closely associated with Japanese budo, taiko is well-suited to any kind of martial arts event.
We perform at style-specific and MMA events, including Carnage in the Cage at ASB Stadium.
Many clubs choose to have special festivities for the grading of its most senior members. Taiko drumming is a memorable way to celebrate the occasion.
e.g. Kagami Biraki
Black belt events, club camps, and more...
Many of our performers also practice the martial arts, including aikido, karate, and judo -- and those movements and techniques have directly influenced our performing style.
Martial Arts dojos are an excellent place for a taiko performance. Our team trains regularly in dojos and we are very careful to protect dojo floors from any scratches.
