   Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial way that originated during WWII.  
The founder of Aikido was born Ueshiba, Morihei.  O'Sensei also had a Shinto
name, Ame no Murakumo Kuki Samu Hara Ryu O O Kami, or the Dragon
King.  A phrase from this Shinto name,"Murakumo", means billowing (many)
clouds.  The term Mura is also short for murasaki (purple).  This is the term
used for the name of our dojo, "Purple Clouds Dojo".  The students
experience traditional Japanese etiquette, language, and supplemental arts.  In
addition, a conscious effort to transform the practitioner via integration and
resonance of energy centers (Head, Heart, & Belly) is applied.  This results in
the capacity to channel "Ki" (Life Energy) and "Kokyu" (Cosmic Breath) into
the forms of Aikido and ultimately life's daily activities
