Origami Project

During the month of May all of the youth from our dojo, as well as interested adults made a variety of colorful origami shapes and animals including cranes, boxes, helmets, hearts, flowers and amazing geometric balls. Everyone who participated learned a lot about fine hand movements, focus and following directions. The goal was to make 400 pieces of origami and we most likely made it half way there, which was great for our first attempt!

Today Vince Sensei and Randy Onitsuka lead a group of 16 youth and their parents to the nearby Veterans Hospital on a very important mission. We presented the veterans with several origami and shook their hands thanking them for their service to our country. I was a rewarding and meaningful experience for everyone. The veterans seemed happy to see young martial artists and receive the wonderful origami made especially for them.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this very special and successful community service project.
