Re: Traditional Aikido? Iwama Aikido?

I would say that people who call what they do "traditional aikido" are trying to teach aikido as their founder believes it was taught by O-sensei. Aikido that is not traditional is that which openly tries to do something different. Therefore, I would say Iwama, Yoshinkan, and Honbu-style Aikikai are "traditional" whereas Tomiki-style, Ki Society, and Nishio-style are not.
