Batgirl:

There is no such thing as "jujitsu"...it is jujutsu. The word "jitsu" is an incorrect spelling that has been propogated.

when it comes to enlightenment (as you are using the word on many occasions), we we speaking about enlightenment on particular topics or issues or in general as in becoming a Bodhisattva or truly enlightened individual?

As to your spinning kicks...I would recommend that you heed the advice of your "jujitsu" friends and discard those as an effective technique. should you ever have the opportunity to perfrom one on an even remotely skilled opponent who is not half KO'ed at the time, you will learn that lesson the hard way.

[/QUOTE]Enlightenment for me is new knowledge, and greater understanding, that brings joy also the use of understanding. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG] As to aerial kicks the more you practice the more you get better. But for now their just finishing moves(final attacks) when I want to end the show or confrontation and keep moving. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

meijin

no offense to you, if you study jujutsu you should know that jujitsu is the original word for jujutsu. Many Japanese old folks still refer to jujitsu than jujutsu. As my folks from Japan.

No it wasn't. Jitsu is an incorrect romanization {sp} of the term. If you want to pull the "i know someone from Japan" card, you should know i was stationed and trained there. Even had me one of those Japanese girlfriends whos father was a very accomplished practitioner of jujUtsu.

No offesne taken...and I don't claim to be a jujutsu-ka (or a jujitsu-ka), I have a yudansha ranking and renshi license in Aikibudo...but to use "jitsu" is wrong. If you don't believe me, run to your local Barnes and Noble and look it up in a dictionary. It is "jutsu". And yes, I do know you can find works that say "jujitsu". But that still does not make it right. I have some old refernce works published between 1890 and 1930 that are on "juido" and "jujitsu". But they are still spelling it wrong.

You can also check all japanese dictionaries.
You all can't bs me, I'm from Japan originally. Just because you stationed there and train there doesn't make you a Japanese culture expert (NO OFFENSE)

Does it really matter how it's spelt?

Both words are correct. As meiji stated before that jitsu isn't the correct one.
I was just to point out that both words are correct.
in romaji it's spell jujutsu, but in origin it is jujitsu (its also not the origin) the real word is suppose to be from (either kanji or katakana) pronouce like this juujitsu. Then translated to romaji into jujutsu.
