Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Are you ready for Welcome year 2013?

Thank you very much for your love of Tenugui all year around. I love tenugui very much, … well as you know :-)
This simple rectangular 100% cotton cloth has unlimited possibilities, to design, to use… and each piece has a beautiful story behind it. We can feel changing season, warming holidays, bitter sweet memories… through Tenugui.

Many unexpected things had happened year 2012, many people died… lost their home, family, and friends… because of nature disaster, or human involved…. Many people are struggling to have foods and comforts in the many places. I am hoping that each one of us, will appreciate what we have in our hands, and sharing and giving what we have, and respect one’s life each other.

I always have my favorite tenugui in my hands, to wiping my happy and sad tears… Tenugui always gives me a warm comfort. Me and Tenugui are always together, for coming new year 2013 as well!
Wishing you a Happy New Year, and hoping you have your favorite tenugui in your hands on your good days and bad days, and please remember that? I am thinking about you, and wishing your happiness as always.

Happy New Year, Tenugui Fans!

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!
