Or it was simply the old su-ha-ri.

Anyway, one thing I've noticed is the great similarities in how waza is done (and the lack of "spirituality") in the styles developed by pre-war students* regardeless affiliation or separation from Aikikai, compared with the different approaches both technical and spiritual you can see in post-war Hombu lines.

*This considering the strong pre-war relationship of O Sensei with Omoto Kyo starting in 1920.
