Agreed, it is all Aikido, but Tomiki Aikido is based on judo (my dad got me their book on accident- he thought it was the one I'd been looking for). Also, by my instructor's and O-sensei's definition, since Tomiki Aikido is competitive, it's not Aikido. Don't get the idea that my instructor dislikes Tomiki style or anything- he was quoting O-sensei as to say that all Aikido should be taught in total cooperation with one other.

Hope this doesn't get me into too much trouble-
