O-Sensei Tanaka, he started the Taiko movement in America, which 
helps to provoke the Japanese to take up the national arts:

Yatabayashi is a signature piece of many taiko groups. It requires 
the equivalence of doing sitting up while whacking the taiko drum... 
of course in rhythm! I was really surprised to see the SF Taiko 
"Rising Stars" playing it, with at least 3-4 girls in the group no 
less. Lesser men have gotten hernia trying to play this piece.

How much fun it is to play Taiko? This picture speaks for itself
