Happy new year to you all.

As we welcome the new year, many of you will start school or work this week. At Tokyo Fukagawa Arakaki Dojo, we held our first training session today, January 6, and held the awarding ceremony for last December’s promotion examination.

Now, Tokyo Fukagawa Aragaki Dojo was able to celebrate its 25th anniversary last May 2022. We are deeply grateful for the understanding and cooperation of the Okikukai and all the parents, the instructors who support us daily with their guidance, and the growth of the dojo students who practice diligently over the past 25 years.

We hope that 2023 will be a year in which each of you will work even harder to achieve your own goals and practice even more fully.Best wishes for successful and rewarding year.
