Battle of Uji

A Memorial Event for Count Takamatsu Tadayoshi, KSCA

It’s early 1180 in June as we travel to Japan to open the Genpei War.  It’s a fight to the death as you cross the bridge over the river Uji with your best warrior monks and a few hundred men to defend the temple.  Fight with bow and arrow, a variety of swords, daggers and Naginata. Fight against the Taira warriors until your death.
