Kagami Biraki is a traditional New Year's celebration and ceremony in Japan. Mochi, or rice cakes, are offered as a symbol of personal reflection.
In traditional dojos, Kagami Biraki represents a Renewing of the Spirit and Rededication to Training. It is also a wish for good luck, no injuries, and a celebration of thanks for all our training partners.
Aikido of the San Juans celebrates Kagami Biraki every year in early January, with a special class for all members, family and friends; kagami biraki ceremony; and shared meal. All members and family welcome and encouraged to participate.
Gasshuku is an intensive training session. Takemusu Aikido Association's annual Gasshuku is held Memorial Day weekend in beautiful Lake Tahoe. From Friday evening through Sunday afternoon, we train joyfully and exuberantly.
