We are counting our blessings and sharing special times with friends and family. The Goju-Kan is a family oriented group based on making new friends, supporting one another and just sharing the knowledge and passion while learning from others that have something to share. I know that with optimism, the year will herald a bright new future for you, as well as for the United Goju-kan Karate Do Hawaii. I look forward to meeting and sharing with you in this journey we are on.

UNITED GOJU-KAN HAWAII SILVER & GOLD
Make new friends, but keep the old; Those are silver, these are gold. New-made friendships, like new wine, Age will mellow and refine.
Friendships that have stood the test—
Time and change — are surely best. Brow may wrinkle, hair grow gray;
Friendship never knows decay. For ‘mid old friends, tried and true, Once more will are youth renew. But old friends,alas,may die; New friends must their place supply.
Cherish friendship in your breast— New is good but old is best Make new friend, but keep the old; those are silver, these are gold.
