    Hin ga nai

    Post by Jonesy on Sun Oct 27, 2013 11:11 pm

    Seldom have I seen anything so vulgar as the interior of the wonderful Butokuden of the Kyoto Budo Centre decked out in the vile and garish yellow and green tatami. Hin ga nai - tacky, tacky, tacky.  To me, it summarises all that is wrong with the IJF in one easy to digest photo.

    I also attach a photo of how it should look when 'matted out', and as it did look when I was there.

    Tacky


    Classic

    The colors in the picture i not accurate and much to shrill. In reality the tatami were much more muted and hay-colored - and not remotely yellow.

    I have my kata recorded on video there, but I´m still in Japan and cannot upload a pic yet.

    these tamai were exactly the same:

    But still not accurate. Cameras with automatic white balance have problems with these kind of light conditions.

    I thought the dojo looked great, the mats in there were far better for kata than the competition area too!

    That's not the Butokuden. Where were the kata demoed?

    The competition took place in the Budo-Center in Kyoto. The Butokuden was the warm-up and training dojo for 4 days. I will post a picture later.
