It is now Christmas eve and a lot of good things have taken place in the organization. We should be thankful for the last year and all the good things God has allowed us to accomplish. I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and joyful Christmas. The schools will be closed through January 10th and we will then once again enjoy the company of each other, but for now focus on what Christmas means by making sure you have good will for all and the desire to give without receving. I have tried to give you the knowledge of my martial arts over the many months you have trained in Double Dragon Goju Ryu. This is my gift to you, please let my efforts truly shine through you in this Christmas season. I wish you a Very Merry Christmas to you and your families from me and my family. Which is as a Grandmaster kind of odd since my students are my family also and to all a happy new year 2016. Sincerely, Hanshi DeBuc.
