About the same time.

All I'm saying is that suggesting a word that is already in common usage is substantially different from coming up with a new term.


Alright, I'll be clear. I meant to say, Deguchi liked the word "Aiki". I do not believe that he invented the word "Aiki". But I do believe Deguchi was more interested in his own views on how the word could be used than what anyone else might have meant by the word. I would also like to say Deguchi's influence can't be easily dismissed.
