On the 8th March Helensville's community service organisations organised the "Kids Big Day Out" to help inform parents and children what is available for them in the area. There were stalls inside the local hall and activities outside as well. First up on the stage was the Okinawa Shorin Ryu Helensville dojo. The team demonstrated various aspects of our style including kihon, conditioning, kata and kobudo. It was well received.
