On the origins of the usage of the "aiki" term, there are various narratives around, one of the most interesting is this one:
Inue hated Takeda. Interestngly, there are other favorable reports statng that Deguchi was quite taken by Takeda's aiki, so much so that he suggested Taked change the name of his art.
