Practice #11 2013

We had the first practice after the summer break on September 7th.

Alan, who watched our panel discussion and Karuta demo at Japan Expo, joined our practice for the first time. He grew up in a family of Japanese descent and his family used to play Karuta during the New Year holiday, he told us.

It was Alan’s first time to play Kyogi Karuta and he had not memorized a single poem when he started. Despite that, he did incredibly good as he demonstrated excellent memory skill. He mastered most of the Red cards before the end of the day. I’m sure he gets better very quickly.
