Ueshiba was calling his art what in 1903 to 1908?

The Takagi period was what 1911?, and at that point he didn't even meet Takeda much less start naming his style.

I know why there so much confusion about Aikido.
Oops, type the wrong date, I meant 1911. Yes the art was called Aikibudo during this time. The problem here is a mentality issue that stems from the Aikikai organization. They have a zealous almost confrontational attitude about being the definitive representation of Aikido, which is not the case. Aikikai is not the only Aikido and definitely not the original Aikido. Let's be honest about the superiority complex. Let's be honest about Aikikai not being the original Aikido.
