This article entitled "A Master's Legacy: The Aikido Center's Very Unusual Move" (http://www.ladowntownnews.com/articles/2007/08/27/news/news04.txt) describes the progress of the physical move of the Aikido Center of Los Angeles dojo once headed by the late Kensho Furuya sensei. "The school recently left its home at 940 E. Second St. and set up temporary digs across the street. They'll operate here until the end of the year, when a new home is completed two miles away at 1211 N. Main St. [...] In his will, Furuya, who never married and had no children, left everything he owned to a private foundation to further the study of Aikido and related arts. The new Aikido Center, his students say, will stand as both a perfect monument to and continuation of his life's passion."

He was a great inspiration.
It is fitting his legacy will go on.

This is a very stand-up thing to do. I hope that his students will be able to further that spirit.
