Some one mentioned that several Daito Ryu schools in Japan refer to themselves as Aikido - I really don't think that the inheritors of Ueshiba M. have exclusive domain to the the name. It is a little bit too generic. On one hand I wish they could since it would help make things clearer, yet on the other hand holders of the name could declare that only approved styles could be called Aikido which would make things more unclear.

Before we get to carried away with Nenaurians Goshin Aikido please remember that there is some pretty poor Aikido out there that do trace their lineage through Ueshiba M.
