...but I would wonder why O'Sensei in 1942 would suddenly want to call his art simply 'the way of ai & ki'.
Ueshiba didn't find or choose the new name. He just accepted the name which was given to his art when it was integrated into the dai nihon butokukai in 1942.

A teacher who is connecting aikido and daoism in an interesting was is Endo Seishiro.
