Yes James;

The name Aikido only existed after 1940, before that it was Aikibudo or Aikijujitsu. That was made clear in several of the above posts and any history you read.

The point though is that just because someone calls what they do Aiki-Jitsu does not make it that. It is very important to check background rather than what it says on the store front.

There is a lot more in depth information available on the internet and books than the few minutes Ah Loi Lee sensei was able to cover.
