Last Saturday, as part of the 2006 Australia-Japan Year of Exchange, a group of armourers and martial artists from Japan gave a demonstration of battlefield techniques and technology from medieval Japan.

There were also demonstrations of kendo and iaido from members of the VKR. Josh Orth and Chris Panagopoulos both have posted pics of the day.
