I realize not everyone "seeks a camera", but it's very difficult to tell from anecdotes told by loyalists. Maybe, maybe not, Peter. I can't make any judicious comments based on that story, unfortunately.

According to Shodokan Dogma the techniques we learn are what Tomiki learnt from Ueshiba M. There is no talk of altering them. Every technique I have seen there I have seen in Aikikai dojos. Training methods are definately different but it is Aikido.
I don't want to get into a styles war. You see no value in kokyu, apparently, or kokyu demonstrations. What little I've seen of Tomiki-style Aikido looked different from most of the other Aikido I've seen, although you're indicating they're the same thing. I guess we'll just have to disagree until we can meet sometime.
