Indeed. Noro Masamichi at least had the decency to change the name of the thing he ended up doing.
Ha,ha. Decency? For such academically gifted folk you sure seem to me to read things as you prefer. I suggest you read up on kinomichi along with with it's philosophy and heritage.
Also. it's much like Ki Aikido. Inoue was almost a co founder of Aikido and what he did was nearer Aikido than most 'Aikido' I see. So enjoy your word games, it's all good.
At least Tohei had the decency to call it Shin shin toitsu ha, ha.
