Next Saturday, January 24th, is our 2015 Kagami Biraki celebration. Adults and children will be together in the Fellowship Hall for this occasion. This event will start with a children’s demonstration followed by our yudansha candidates Takashi and Oscar demonstrating 36 vs 36, and then Julian and Atsuko demonstrating some hand techniques.
