Wink Shodokan or Tomiki Aikido?

As far as I know, he never refers to Yoshinkan as "Shioda Aikido", or to Yoseikan as "Mochizuki Aikido", so whats so difficult about calling Shodokan by its proper name?
YAMANTAKA : Take a look at this page :

As you see, it's not just the Editor or anybody else, but its own practitioners that call Shodokan also Tomiki... But of course I agree with you and I think Tomiki himself was against that usage.
Anyway, I really advise everybody to subscribe to Aikido Journal on Line. The subscription lasts for one year and is really cheap for all it offers.
