That one went to the sea voyage pile.
With respect to the term Aiki - I doubt that even in historical times, in cultural context, it had any clear meaning. Much as I like and can relate to some of those historical definitions the terms use was more broad - almost like a catch-all. Ueshiba if anything was even less precise.
For anyone to say what Ueshiba actually meant requires a lot of assumption (presumption).
The more I read and learn the more I am forced to agree with this. As much as I would like to put "Ueshiba's idea of Aiki" in a little box, it's nearly impossible.
I think simply sticking to the word Aikido, when referencing our system is best.
