Tenugui mumbling Vol.103 – Jereme Sander’s Story

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

?

Jereme is a Parkour practitioner, a member of the Tribe (Professional Parkour Team) and American Parkour, and also he is a Tenugui fan. You can find him at Tenugui on the street Vol.35 at our site.

Parkour originally came from France, and was used for Military education and training during World War I and II.? The main purpose of the discipline is to teach participants how to move through their environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing and jumping…. just like a Ninja!

This video is a story about Jereme Sanders; becoming and working to be a Parkour Traceur is not easy, but his passion and love of Parkour has touched my heart deeply.

It’s a great thing to have what you love most, and living your life doing what you love.
Life has many different forms, and I believe that your love and passion, and thoughts, create your destiny.

Wishing Happy Holidays,?Jereme and ?all Tenugui Fans!

Tenugui mumbling Vol. 95 – Tenugui Magic Vol.05 How to use Tenugui by Sommelier Style

Monday, June 20th, 2011

Tenugui Magic Vol.05 – How to use TENUGUI by Sommelier Style from Ruri Kippenbrock (wuhaonyc) on Vimeo.

I visited Yasu-san at 15 EAST (15 E. 15th street, NYC) Japanese Restaurant the other day. Yasu-san always supports me and Tenugui since I started my own company in 2007.

After his long career in his food service business in New York, he went to Los Angeles and expolered new location?a few years. And now he came back to New York, and challenging his new carrea in 15 EAST. His excellent service is always touched my heart very deeply. I’ll definately go anyplace he’ll be for my very special day!

He shows me “How to use Tenugui by Sommelier Style” on this movie. Tenugui is a perfect cloth to dry and shine luxury glassware. Yasu-san said; Tenugui is a very simple and great cloth to wipe a glass, because you don’t need to wipe it twice. Tenugui absorbs all moisture, and fine fibers don’t stick on the glass. Usually, he have to use two different kitchen cloths to wipe a glass, one for dry and one for shine, but not with Tenugui!

Thank you Yasu-san for sharing this great technique with us, and thank you very much for your support of Tenugui and me always!!!!

One sunny day, I displayed fundoshi in our booth at the Japan Town Street Fair Fall 2010. Fundoshi is?Japanese men’s traditional underwear.? I had recently discovered one and I wanted to?see how people?reacted about Tenugui fundoshi.?I?really?loved it, but I didn’t know how to display it for our Tenugui fans, as I am a girl…

A strange guy came to our booth with?a Japanese samurai wig with a mame-sibori hachimaki (dots print headband) on top of his wig. He was wearing a monkey outfit and had?a hand-written cardboard hanging around his neck, which read: “Your Smile is Beautiful”.? It turns out he was ?Yoshi the Ringmaster of the Tokyo Circus. He took a?Tenugui fundoshi and put it on in the middle of the street and showed it to the crowd.? It was the day of the Tenugui Fundoshi debut!

The Tokyo Circus?is an international performance group led by Yoshi. They perform on the street,?sending positive messages to?strangers. They believe that a “smile” will bring?happiness and peace under any circumstance. Their very simple philosophy touched my heart very deeply.?I?realized that we had a common dream, namely, “to make people smile and happy,”? Yoshi by?an innocent performance, me by a?simple rectangular cloth, Tenugui.??????

I had been thinking about attending the?Coney Island Polar Bears Club?Annual New Year’s?Swim.??The Polar Bears Club is the oldest winter bath organization in the US. ?After meeting Yoshi I began wondering if there was a way to put?Tenugui together with the Tokyo Circus, since we?have a similar dream.?I told my friends that I was?joining the Polar Bears, and all of them said, “Are you crazy?”

“Why not,”? I thought to myself.? In Japan, we have a?ritual whereby people?soak in the cold winter?water both to?discipline their perseverance and pray for a healthy year. Wouldn’t this be the same??

We went, froze and had a great time!?

“Hatsu-warai” means first laugh of the year. We believe?if we have a laugh on the first day of the year, we’ll be full of?laugher all year.

Here we go!
Freezin for a reason…. for your smile and happiness all year around!

Thank you Tokyo Circus for making this event?come true. ?And thank you very much Kenji-san, Janis, and Shinobu-san?for the beutiful photos to remember this beautiful moment.
You can see more amazing photos on our Facebook Japanese Tenugui Art Fan Club page! Check it out now!!!!!

By the way, Tenugui fundoshi will be available on March at wuhaonyc.com
