This has led to many possible interpretations of the word. Aikido also derives much of its technical structure from the art of swordsmanship kenjutsu. It is unclear exactly when Ueshiba began using the name "aikido", but it became the official name of the art in when the Greater Japan Martial Virtue Society Dai Nippon Butoku Kai was engaged in a government sponsored reorganization and centralization of Japanese martial arts.
