No, Kuo Shu Aiki-jitsu has nothing at all to do with Japanese Aikijitsu. The English name for the system is "The Way of Unlimited Strength and Harmony". It is an American hybrid system made up of various American, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Filipino systems. Kuo Shu Aiki-jitsu was founded in 2001 by Shihan Alan Gililland. I am currently the senior instructor under him.
