Mark already stated it: Aikido as per Kisshomaru's vision.
That excludes Iwama, Yoshinkan and Tomiki lineages. Are you saying that they did retain the old goods?

The few Japanese arts that still maintain aiki within them, are not generally open to the "the world," and individuals who want to learn aiki must go through the process both of being accepted into those exclusive arts, and to have to learn the entire system in order to learn aiki. Even then, there is no guarantee that they will be taught the essense of aiki.
You forgot to clarify which "Japanese arts that still maintain aiki" you were referring to.
