I think I'm with Peter on this one. I'm no Aikido history expert, and it's been some time since I opened the Dynamic Sphere, but my take on the large circular movements are that they are the more modern approach. I would argue, not too strenuously though, that the first Doshu probably sent things down this path as much as anyone. May the history minded and more knowledgeable on this topic correct me.
