Re: Question about the renaming of ikkajo to ikkyo (philosphy)

In the 1958-1960 Aikido manuals by Abe Tadashi he still classifies the waza under -kajo series. Shihonage is in the Ikkajo, kote-gaeshi is in the Nikkajo, there are koshi-nage both in the Sankajo and in the Yonkajo, aiki-otoshi (the one who resembles Judo's sukui nage) is in the Gokkajo... Worth reading.

He also uses ude osae for ikkyo, kote mawashi for nikkyo, etc, like the shodothugs.
