Of course. I thought it was the only way.
$ man -k password
passwd(1), yppasswd(1) - modify a user's password
From that man page:
A passwd command appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX.
By comparison, pw(8) is a newcomer. In fact, the passwd command was
in the Third Edition of Research UNIX, back in 1973.
