So politically correct.

Time to slap on the old 7th dan (I'm a modest fellow), declare myself to be a practitioner of Karategata Aikido founded by Warui Fuka in the late 16th century. Fuka sensei discovered his art while meditating on the depth of caves. It puzzled him greatly that there were, well, such a thing as caves. After much meditation, deliberation, and no small quantity of sake, he declared himself to have mastered kouki. From there it was a mere baby-step to the mastery of aiki which grew into new meaning and achieved new depths under Fuka Sensei's guidance. And so, Karategata Aikido was formed.

Our motto: If it has the name, it must be good!

PS: I'm assuming I butchered my attempt to butcher the Japanese language.
