I don't think that my question was answered because I just want to know if 'ka' can be added to 'jutsu' and still be correct Japanese and not some made-up gaijin term.


If it helps, Donn Draeger used the term 'bujutsuka' liberally in a number of his books. I have also seen it used in Japanese books and martial arts related publications. So, grammatically it would seem that adding 'ka' as a suffix to 'jutsu' is ok.



Thank you Adam, you splendid taijutsuka you!

If it's good enough for the late Mr Draeger (his 'ninjutsu' book notwithstanding) then it's good enough for me.

Now all I have to do is release a celebratory song to the tune of Kate Bush's 'Babooshka'.



(Ay, aah taijutsuka, taijutsuka, taijutsuka yay yah......)
