Thank you for filling me in on the details. (Although I had read in Aikido: The Way of Harmony that O Sensei's art went by a slew of different names before he settled on "Aikido," so that wasn't unknown to me.)

My point was, how can you blame Tomiki for doing essentially the same thing that Ueshiba did?
