This follows the Japanese Tradition of “Hatsu Geiko”. Hatsu Geiko, also known as Kagami Biraki (鏡開き), is the first performance of a chosen art in the New Year and sets the tone for the remainder of the year. Thus, one will perform to the best of one’s ability taking this first performance of the year very seriously. It will define who one is, if one has mastered his art, or where one is on the road to mastery. Many Japanese martial arts groups around the world observe Hatsu Geiko. During the first days of the New Year, martial artists engage in some challenging activity to test themselves and start the year off right. We will discuss and show what the Bujinkan is all about in thought word and deed. For those who are interested, you will be able to participate in actual hands on learning.
