Technically speaking, Aikijutsu and Aikijujutsu are two very different things, actually, two different arts, or two aspects of one budo or bujutsu. Aikijutsu actually refers to the literal use of Aiki principles in-and-of themselves to win an altercation - meaning, no physical technique. It refers to something done on another level of interaction. Aikijujutsu refers to the physical aspects of technique - lock this, throw that etc. The term Aikijutsu is misused now in regard to it's old meaning.
