Re: When were Aikido waza named?

Does anyone know if the Daito ryu licenses given to the prewar deshi were written by Ueshiba? If so, does anyone know of the actual technique names were listed, and if so, what names were used?

My guess is that Ueshiba wrote those scrolls, or at least dicatated them, and that there were specific technique names used, and that they followed closely the Daito ryu naming conventions.

A lot of those licenses were lost during the war (I believe Gozo Shioda's was) but surely at least some of them survived.
