18 Dec

To all my readers and subscribers, I wish to extend my sincere wishes for a joyful Holiday Season.

Regardless of one’s religious beliefs, this time of year is the one time that everyone seems to share a genuine concern for each other, It is this Holiday spirit that sustains us all throughout the remainder of the year; during those times when feelings of “I” instead of “We” pervade our thoughts and emotions.

Let us embrace the simple concept that giving is better than receiving. In doing so, we benefit not only the recipient, but also our own sense of self and self-worth.

Please accept this short (under 3 minutes) video clip made for you all as a Pre-Christmas clip – “Old Toy TrainS” by Joe Nichols LINK:


You are cordially invited to join me in the following SANCHIN KATA TRAINING SESSIONS. Due to geographic distances, we are unable to be together; however, we can all be together in spirit. Sanchin will be performed simultaneously in various parts of the continental United States and we will be spiritually joined during the performance. Here are the details:


So that we may enjoy the Holiday Season together, as a group, on December 26th, 2011 (the day after Christmas) Sanchin Kata shall be performed at 8:00 am, Eastern Standard Time. Adjust your time accordingly, so, for example, I will perform Sanchin at 6 am Mountain Time.


Many years ago, I learned from a comrade, Sensei Gil B., that many cultures celebrate not the end of the old year, but, the birth of the New Year. Since then, I have always commemorated the sunrise of the New Year with a Kata training session. In keeping with this tradition, Sanchin Kata shall be performed at 8:00 am Eastern Standard Time on January 1st, 2012. Again, adjust your time accordingly, thus my Sanchin will start at 6 am Mountain Time.

I look forward to performing Sanchin Kata with you all.

I remain,


Sensei John Szmitkowski
