Adult Recreational Classes

San Jose Taiko's Adult Recreational Class (ARC) is open to adults of all ages and skill levels. ARC is designed to give people the chance to play taiko on a casual basis and covers basic playing techniques, taiko history and etiquette, and San Jose Taiko's philosophy. Although no experience is necessary, participants must be at least 15 years old and capable of fairly rigorous physical activity.

2014 ARC Sessions:

  • FALL: 9/7 - 10/26   Class and waiting list are both full. 2015 ARC dates will be posted in September.

This class will include more strenuous warmups, focus on improving technique and building stamina, and will introduce naname (slant stand) kata. Participants should be capable of strenuous exercise.

This class is also open to anyone who was a part of our Junior Taiko Program's Advanced, Prep, or JTPE classes.
