Style: Nothing - yet

Just checking your grandfather wasnt 20 years too early. Jujitsu is the Jap spelling.
This isnt set it stone or anything, it was just worth checking.
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.
Judo was sometimes called 'Jiu-do' or 'Kano Jiu-Jitsu' when it was first taught to the Gracies in ninteteen-oh-whenever-it-was.
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.
Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.
