Re: Why is 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.
Ueshiba called his art aikibudo in 1911? Either thats a typo too, or you need to do a little more research.
