Happy 2013 Everyone!
Welcome to another year with Aikido of Del Mar. We are excited to officially kick off our training this year by a tradition of reflecting on the past and rededicating to the new — come and join us to celebrate Kagami Biraki (鏡開き) on Saturday, Jan 19th from 11am-1pm.
This celebration was an old samurai tradition dating back to the 15th century. As for Aikido of Del Mar, this is our 4th annual Kagami Biraki celebration. As of tradition, all three classes will meet together for this special event. All students from kids white belts to adult black belts will demonstrate an aspect of aikido he/she has been working on. Please invite your friends and family to this event as spectators will have an opportunity to support the students through their dedicated training and to celebrate their continuous growth.
After the demonstration all are invited to join us to break mochi and enjoy a potluck lunch together. The adult class will provide main dishes, youth class will bring appetizers and side dishes, and the kids class will bring utensils, drinks and desserts.
Please let us know if you have any questions!
