Kumo was invited back by the Auckland Seido Karate Club to open their first event of the year - Kagami Biraki (breaking of the mirror). 7:30am start is a bit early but we had a great show! We had the chance to break the morning silence with rocking taiko sound; followed by shamisen performance from Neo; martial arts demo from Seido members; and a good workout class led by Kyoshi Mark. The morning concluded with a hearty breakfast, coffee, and ice cream! The year is off to a great start!
