[QUOTE] Quote taken from skhquest.com: CLARIFICATION NOTE: There is mild controversy over the written English for the Japanese word jutsu. Some prefer the awkward jitsu, an inaccurate rendering, though there is no such thing as spelling in Japanese. The incorrect "ninjitsu" is most often used by American "ninja" who have never studied ninja martial arts in Japan. The Japanese language jitsu (pronounced "jeetsu" as in "Jeep") is translated as "truth" or "to become ripe" or "fruit". Therefore, the word "ninjitsu" would have to be translated as something like the "fruit of stealth".
NinjItsu is incorrect. NinjUtsu is the correct spelling, again.
The other site you offered is riddled with inaccuracies and is hardly a valid source for information on ninjutsu. Might as well have been written by Frank Dux.
