TAIKOZ JANUARY INTENSIVE – January 15-17 2021 | Two Ultimo dojos – Taikoz Dojo and D2
Intermediate players, advanced players, out-of-Sydney players – everyone is welcome!
We’re going to sweep away the cobwebs and freshen ourselves up and get ready to meet the challenges of 2021. How? Simple… we’re going to focus on the essence of what we do best: Tai 太 – ‘big, fat, around’ – Ko 鼓 – “drum”!
To bring the ‘intense’ into ‘Intensive’, sessions will be centered on Yataibayashi (Chichibu festival style drumming), Odaiko (the Grand Drum), Yoko-uchi (side-on style drumming), and a little Katsugi Okedo (shoulder drum) thrown in for good measure.
There will be two streams – one for Intermediate players and another for Advanced players (see below for definitions). Sessions will run concurrently in the Taikoz Dojo and up the corridor in D2.
To kick us off, there will be a Big Drum Up on Friday evening, followed by four 90-minute sessions on Saturday and again on Sunday. Both days will begin with warm-ups in Wentworth Park (weather permitting), and two Taikoz members will lead each individual session.
For relaxation, we’ll enjoy a fully catered meal together on Saturday night. And then, when we're all totally exhausted, post-Intensive drinks on Sunday evening (see below to download Timetable).
We’re already looking forward to seeing you in the New Year!
