Re: "Aikido student" in Japanese and more...

Why is 'aikidoka' considered wrong? Is this within the aikido community itself or does it cut across into casual conversation, too? I've heard other Japanese people use the 'aikidoka'. I know I can't these things too seriously, though, my first Japanese teacher said that foreigners should never, ever use kansai-ben (?!).
