Come Defend the Gates of Sudentorre!

East meets West as the nanban, traders from Portugal, have landed on Japan's southern shore. They bring with them foreign trade goods, food, and, of course, their culture. Please join us to celebrate this momentous occasion, and defend our gates from those that wish to expel our new guests.

Martial activities include; Heavy Fighting, Youth Heavy Fighting, Fencing, and Archery.

There will be A&S activities and merchants to peruse.
