In Morihei Ueshiba's Budo (1938) the doer of the technique is referred to as "shite". Does anyone knows why and when the common practice (Yoshinkan excluded) moved towards nage/tori ?
I suspect the term 'nage' was introduced by Tohei Sensei, and this was later changed to 'tori'... If I'm not mistaken Yoshinkan preserves an earlier form of Aikido, hence retention of the term 'shite'
