Happy New Year 2009!

Aloha from Hawaii!

Well, the New Year is almost here. This is a good time to rededicate ourselves to Karate training and refining our techniques and body dynamics.

Karate is not one style or system. Karate is all of us. Whether we practice Goju-Ryu, Shorin-Ryu, Kenpo, or Shotokan, we are all carrying on the art of Karate. From the youngest child to the oldest Sensei, each and every one of us is a thread in the great fabric of the art.

Karate does not exist in books or photographs. It only lives when we practice it. It is something to "do," not just think, talk, or read about.

Our dojo starts classes for the New Year on Monday. For my students, let's try our very best! And let's try to help our juniors too!

And most importantly, let's try our best to practice Karate in our daily lives -- to refine ourselves as well as our techniques.
