New Year Oshiruko 2017


(Can't see the photos? Click here to be redirected to the web album.) 

Japanese new year treats were served at the practice in Jan. 17 due to the emergency closing of King Center in Jan. 10. 

Japanese new year treats, oshiruko (sweet red bean soup with rice cake) and ozoni (savory soup with rice cake), were served after the practice. It is the tradition of Japanese martial arts known as Budo Hajime (first practice of the year). It is the ceremony to pray the members' health and improving their skill. Friends and families of San Mateo dojo were invited.
