Re: Irimi Nage as Kokyu nage?

I noticed that when I first read that book. Here is the explanation I got. The names were changed when the 2nd Doshu was reorganizing O'sensei 's work. Something to the effect, that his father had all these techniques that he didnt bother to name and or used the same name for a group of techniques. The 2nd Doshu's work was really to organize the martial inheritance he was left with. This would explain why many of the non Aikikai lineages have different terminology depending on when the "broke" from the Aikikai
