Event activity report!
I'm the staff of Dentoya Akatsuki who loves traditional techniques!!
Today's blog is "Event activity report".
The other day, we held a cardboard armor class and a matchlock-type rubber band gun shooting tournament!!!
It consisted of two parts, a "cardboard armor class" in the morning and a "matchlock-type rubber band gun shooting tournament" in the afternoon.
Participants had to make a reservation in advance, but some of the participants said that they enjoyed the morning session, and some children also participated in the afternoon session, so it ended with a great success!
In the cardboard armor class, many children who are interested in history often participate, so we prepared 3 patterns of family crest so that they do not have to worry about what to draw when coloring the armor.
This is it ↓
I didn't explain the name of the family crest, but as soon as he saw the family crest, he said "I like Takeda's crest!"
I was surprised that some children who like history know the family crest of the Sengoku warlords!
By the way, the most popular this time was the Takeda family crest.
I think the children had a meaningful time, as they all enjoyed making it and were surprised by the weight of the iron armor.
The afternoon was "Matchlock type rubber band gun shooting tournament".
First, I showed them a real matchlock and how I actually held it, and then explained how to hold it and how to shoot it.
After all, when a boy has a gun, he has a dignified face!
The rubber band gun shooting tournament had a special wooden target shot.
In the beginning, the children repositioned the fallen targets, just as the instructor lined them up. However, as they got used to it, the children changed their target positions and started playing.
What was particularly surprising was that the children knew the Jinkei, a battle-formation. They started playing with placing the target as a "Jinkei"!
A "Jinkei" is a typified arrangement of personnel and equipment to ensure safety and maximize combat power during battles!
There are eight types of formations created by a warlord Takeda Shingen, who is popular with children.
It is called "Sengoku Hachijin".
It's an "offensive strategy" that was designed to get the upper hand in battle by incorporating Chinese military method.
I was happy to meet children who knew such things.
The representative smiled that there was a child who wrote in the questionnaire, "I want to see the representative again."
After doing this event, I realized that this project will be enjoyed by children.
There are still many ways to enjoy it, so I would like to consult with the organizer each time to find various ways to play.
