Ai symbol turn, turn turn

By understanding the basic principles of aikido, such as not doing things that injure your partner's body, specifically the joints, many jujitsu techniques can be adopted, with minor or major adjustments, to fit into your aikido repertoire.

Generally speaking, when altering jujitsu techniques to make them into aikido waza, one will inititally need to turn more.

I don't think there's anything wrong with adopting such techniques in the aikido dojo as long as (1) you have a solid understanding of what aikido is, (2) you can make to proper adjustments so that the technique is safe and follows aikido principles, and (3) most importantly, your instructor condones such adventures.
