Freshers Fayre

Postby thauma » Wed Sep 18, 2013 11:43 am | #1

Well another academic year beckons and we've got a stand at the Freshers Fayre. We're pretty sorted for that, but we also have the potential for a demonstration slot, and yet again we're prepared(ish), we need to see the demo area to make sure it's a viable proposition, but other than the normal risk assessment I think that we're good to go. We've been through this a few times before so there shouldn't be any issues.

However I just thought it would be worth canvasing opinions on what could be good / different / eye-catching based on what the collective wisdom of this forum can offer from their own experiences.

So fire away - any thoughts?………...

One that is fun is to have an uki dressed in his/her civvies standing in the crowd.  The uki attacks at some point during the demo which will surprise the genuine crowd.

I'd sign up if there were free beer…….. :-)

Stealth Uke from crowd is most likely in the game plan already - depending on ease of access. It works remarkable well.

We've previously also used a selection of weapons on the mat, and asked for volunteers from the crowd to determine which weapon, which type of attack and who to attack, without the victim knowing what's coming: NOTE they don't get to play however….. but it brings an element of audience participation to the demo
