I think semantics are getting in the way of a more lucid exchange on the subject of this thread.

Aikido is a way or path and Aikijujutsu, Aikijutsu, and Aiki no jutsu are techniques. The distinction between them can be subtle/confusing because they're related [technically]. However, Aikido has a unique set of fundamental principles, ideology, methodolgy, spirituality, and innovative techniques . Our interpretations of what Aikido is and isn't are more reflective [of personal growth] than definitive; we shouldn't put the Universe in a box.
