When I first started I got the impression in my novice head that Ki-Aikido focused more on KI exercises than Aikido techniques. I told my Sensei that the 2nd day of my training no less and he told me I was very mistaken. I learned later that our organization is considered to be an offshoot of Ki-Aikido. DOH!!! I still have no idea how/why/where I got that impression. I still feel like an idiot when I think about it.
