Takahashi Dojo Holiday Party & Toy Drive 2022

Our traditional Holiday Party & Toy Drive was held on Dec 10th. The turnout was great, with an exceptional buffet of tasty foods, and lots of toy donations for those less fortunate.

After the party, 4 large bags of toys were distributed to selected organizations who make sure the toys get delivered to those in need. Leftover food was also donated to local food pantries.

Happy Holidays !!

2021 Mt. Kisco Takahashi Dojo Holiday Party & Annual Toy Drive

Our dojo family got together on Saturday, Dec 11th, to celebrate the Holiday Season. It was also an opportunity to take a moment to be thankful for all the many good things that happened this year, in light of the tremendous challenges going on in the world around us.

We celebrated our 28th Annual Takahashi Dojo Annual Toy Drive, where we collected toys and clothing to help those who are less fortunate in our community.

Special set of thanks to: a) the folks who helped to decorate the Dojo, and b) members that brought in the incredible food, dishes and desserts to share.

Here are a few snapshots from the event:

Please enjoy a safe, fun and peaceful Holiday Season.
