Both are aikidoka. In Yoshinkan Aikido is the instructor the only one who wears hakama.

makes sense"To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

I'd pay money to see a Judoka wear a Hakama to an Aikido dojo and OWN the Sensei !!!!"To sin by silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men".

Here's another unrealistic demo, but is a little more entertaining.

And one more for good measure (I quite like the soundtrack to this one).
This one is more a drilling demo (and again not necessarily the best). But notice the mix of judo-esque throws, aikido wristy-grabby throws and a smidge of padwork (punch/kick). And some other Larping fun like standing joint locks etc. which will no doubt be derided by some of the folks on here.
But essentially, Aikido is based on some of the "soft" techniques from jujitsu (which are usually taught once your'e higher up the food chain and have a good grounding in the "hard" techniques). So whilst it is drawn from the same pool, Aikido =/= Jujitsu.
