Kangeiko 2018

Kagami Biraki

On Sunday, January 7, 2018, Yoseikan Anderson held a New Year's training session called Kagami Biraki.  We had the good fortune to have Renshi Eric Ford join us and be our guest instructor for most of the training.  Shihan Shawna Lingo led the class through Chokusen near the end and we finished up with each of the yudansha taking a turn being the center of the "spriit circle" and leading the group through some fast paced and kia filled waza.
