Notice to Our Readers: We are halting publication of the Significato Journal. It's been a lovely experience, but we have found that with limited time, we need to focus our efforts in new directions (which include book publishing). We have started to move content to our personal websites ( and (Kim's website is not ready yet)). When that process is completed, we'll send out a final email to our SJ subscribers and invite you all to subscribe to our individual subscription lists. We'll post links to our other writers too, so that you can find their work. More to come... [Peter and Kim - May 26, 2020]

Help the Philippines Recover from Typhoon Rammasun

Jul 18, 2014

Boxing Gym in the PhilippinesOur dear friend, Eiji Yoshikawa, has been working with a group of boxers in the Philippines for several years. During Typhoon Haiyan their gym and homes were demolished. Through fundraising that Eiji organized among mostly Japanese students, money was raised to rebuild their gym which doubles as a community center and orphanage.

Typhoon Rammasun destroyed their center again. 

Eiji created a film entitled "Rumble in the Jungle," about his efforts training and working with Filippino boxers who are struggling to support their families. We will be publishing that story soon, but for now we wanted to help raise awareness about the typhoon disaster.  Please visit Eiji's Facebook page to learn more about his efforts to help. Contact him, via that page, if you would like to help, too. His Facebook page is:
