Kagami Biraki, which literally means "Mirror Opening", is a traditional Japanese celebration that is held in many traditional martial arts dojos usually on the second Saturday or Sunday of the New Year.

Historically Kagami Biraki was a longstanding Samurai tradition dating back to the 15th century. Since then other Japanese arts including Karate, and Jujutsu, have adopted the celebration that officially starts afresh the New year - a tradition of "Renewal, Rededication, and Spirit".

In Japan, Kagami Biraki is still practiced by many families. It marks the end of the New Year's holiday season which is by far the biggest celebration of the year
