I'm sure that there are some really long threads on this on here somewhere where this has been discussed at length - but AFAIK, 'Jiu-Jitsu' (or Jiujitsu) is merely an older romanization of the Japanese term. It's not an indicator that an art is not of Japanese origin - and is perhaps only an indicator that the art arrived from Japan in an earlier time.

Edit: This is why people who argue about whether Ninjutsu is better (or more real) than Ninjitsu are silly.
I know. I did state that It was not always the case. Just worth a check.
I know for a fact there is no relation. Now, you do also.
