Terms like tenchinage and shihonage have always been part of Aikido terminology - they pre-date the Ikkajo/Ikkyo etc terms. Shodokan terms were intended to be more descriptive of what was actually happening. Tomiki sometimes used older terms, sometimes modern to make that happen. We of course, through having to deal with our brethren from other styles, know most of the other terms.

hmmm...so is the term "tenchi nage" fairly new? I'd consider it an irimi technique as well. Now I'm curious as to the history of the term "tenchi nage".
