The Tasman Bridge & Derwent River. Hobart, Tasmania.
With only one week to go, my family and I are looking forward to our 16 day trip to my home in Tasmania. Summer is generally quite warm in Tasmania. I find myself dreaming of catching some cool summer waves in and around Hobart while enjoying the southern suns rays on my face.
The New Year is a grgeat time to enjoy local hospitality at festivals along the riverfront of the capital. I aim to sit and enjoy good music,wine and local produce with friends and family and soak in the calming atmosphere of good old Hobart town.
The Tasmanian Shin Gi Tai Ichi Dojo will hold a class on January 3rd. This will be the ” Kagami Biraki “ for the dojo. This tradition was the breaking open of a large vat of Sake and sharing it to celebrate the New Year. The Hobart Dojo will break into the New Year with ” Shikin Haramitsu Dai Komyo!” and a class on the basis of Budo, the Go Gyo no Kata and the Kihon Happo Gata.
