Actually, it is the other way around. After Koichi Tohei left, Aikikai continued to use the same naming conventions. Of course, the longer the two organizations remain separated, the bigger difference there will be in the naming of techniques.

The original name for the technique was kote-gaeshi (wrist turn). This was change by the Ki Society because it was felt to be an inaccurate description of how to do the technique correctly. The technique was renamed kote-oroshi (wrist drop).

It is not practice that makes perfect, it is correct practice that makes perfect.
