Kagami Biraki 2017

Posted on 1月 6th, 2017

Our annual Kagami Biraki demonstration will take place Saturday, January 14th, at the Honbu Dojo.

A special demonstration by Chida Sensei and Honbu Dojo instructors starts at 11am, and will be followed by an Oshiruko-kai party beginning at 12pm.  “Oshiruko” is a traditional sweet red bean paste soup.

The demonstration is free to attend, and there is a fee of 1,000 yen for the Oshiruko-kai.
This is a casual event, so please feel free to come in your street clothes and enjoy the demonstration and party afterwards.

We hope to see you all there!

 

About Kagami Biraki:
Kagami Biraki, which means literally “Mirror Opening,” is a ceremony that dates back over 300 years to the 4th Tokugawa Shogun, who held a Sake cask breaking ceremony before going into a battle. The battle was successful and a tradition was born. It is also a New Year tradition in which Kagami Biraki refers to the opening of a Kagami mochi, the mochi rice cakes placed on Shinto alters as offerings. Martial Arts dojos traditionally also perform a demonstration as an offering.
