Learn to play the taiko drums with members of Mugenkyo at their base & rehearsal space, the Mugen Taiko Dojo in the South Lanarkshire countryside. Experience the thrill of playing & learning taiko in a group, in a supportive atmosphere with some of the top instructors in the UK, and gain a unique insight into the fascinating world of taiko drumming.

The topic of this 4-day course will be "Fukui no Mitsu-uchi".

Fukui no Mitsu-uchi, also known as the Hokuriku style, is based around the popular DONDOKO mitsu-uchi rhythm. The course covers the basic solo patterns to build a vocabulary of Fukui-style rhythms, along with bachi sabaki movement typical of this style, and historical background & insight.

This course corresponds to the "Foundation" level of the Dojo training, and is also suitable for the "Mugen Training" participants as a supplement for the more advanced Fukui-style taught regularly at that level. The course is taught by Miyuki, head instructor at the Mugen Taiko Dojo, using the Mugen Taiko Do method. Miyuki has trained extensively with Masaaki Kurumaya Sensei, the original teacher of Mugenkyo, in Fukui and in the UK regularly from 1992 onwards until the present day.
