Happy Memorial Day

I've always liked this phrase. It embodies what Memorial Day is all about. Today, remember those brave men and women who have their lives to keep us all free.

Happy 105th Mother's Day

The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. She then began a campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s. Jarvis' holiday was adopted by other countries and it is now celebrated all over the world. In this tradition, each person offers a gift, card, or remembrance toward their mothers, grandmothers, and/ or maternal figure on mother's day.
We here at the Sanbukan Dojo want to make sure that all of our Friends, Students and Loved ones take the day to give their Mothers or Mother Figures back some of that special love that rubbed of on them when they hugged and loved you as a child.
