On April 20th to celebrate the Birthday of Ansei Ueshiro, actually the entire week of April 20th, we will be celebrating Ansei Ueshiro’s birthday by preforming 100 kata during class time. Leading up to this event we take class time to work our way to at least 50 reps per class and then double it on the day/ days of the celebrations. All students who participate receive belt pins. Some of us have so many belt pins already from years gone by that we are just happy to enjoy the 100 kata and the connection to feeling really good. More on this later.
