Another Successful Iaido Demonstration at Evelyn Meador!

On May 17th the Evelyn Meador Library celebrated Asian American Heritage month with our forth Japanese Sword (Iaido) demonstration. It went great, with demonstrators displaying fascinating forms, proceeded by a little Samurai History and an explanation of the various arts to be demonstrated. There was a great turn out, and we hope to see even more at next year's event!
