Despite social distancing, Zoom training, training with household members for much of this year, our children did an excellent job taking a long test with masks.
Congratulations to our new Jr. Shodan, Ikkyu, and Yonkyu with Stripes!
Each year, we re-dedicate ourselves to our training, strengthen connections with other martial artists in and outside of our dojo and celebrate the new year. This year, we were fortunate to have many people participate and demonstrations of Japanese and Okinawan arts by Ken Baker Sensei and Jeff Jones Sensei.
Ryoichi Kinoshita (Aikikai, 7th Dan) taught about Aikido and Shodo (Japanese calligraphy) with the theme of 上善如水 (Jozen Mizu no Gotoshi).
