Types of jiu-jitsu?

I'm aware that there are different forms of jiu-jitsu out there. Example I can think of off the top of my head include Aikido, Judo, BJJ, and Japanese Jiu-jitsu (aka tai-jitsu).

Are there other common forms of Jiu-jitsu being taught here in the US other than these?

I also had some questions about Tai-Jitsu, I'm assuming this is Japanese JJ? I've looked at a few vids online, it almost looks like karate. Would this be a fair example?

Isn't Tai-Jitsu something from Family Guy? Anyway, something to get you started: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jujuts...ves_and_others

Re: Types of jiu-jitsu?

Taijutsu (modern spelling) means "body art(s)" and is merely Aikido's term for techniques without weapons; several other Japanese and Japanese-derived martial arts also use the term. Some other Japanese martial arts might use "jūjutsu" or "yawara" to refer to roughly the same idea.

Re: Types of jiu-jitsu?

If it traces direct linage to some traditional Jujutsu in Japan then it can be called Jujutsu. 99% of the Jujutsu out there today is nothing of the sort. Even most Jujutsu in Japan is not Jujutsu anymore.
