Re: Aikikai: Style or organisation?
From my poor knowledge of the language, "Kai" means an organization in Japanese.
However, most groups in the organization do have a very similar style. Those that do not conform with that style, normally consider themselves as part of a style and the organization. So, when trying to describe the style of the members who do not have special style, most would call it "AikiKai style".
This is the best explanation I can give as an outsider.
