Re: Ninjitsu, ninjutsu what is the difference?

As far as I'm aware they both have the same meaning, when spoken they both mean the same thing to the japanese.
However I get a sense that whenever I hear 'ninjitsu', it is affiliated to a more (I hate to say it, and will probably get stick) 'Americanised', Ashida Kim or BBD version of the art, which tends to be black clad assasins of the night. Or those who wear Shinobizue outfits and claim to practice ninjitsu. Personally I would prefer the title of 'Bujinkan budo'. However I know there are those out there who would probably say, "I do ninjitsu!". Would I laugh at them? Dunno really.

Well, "jitsu" could be 実 for essence (among other things), and "jutsu" (術) is used for technique. Can't recall seeing the former anywhere, though (connected to these things). This - jutsu/jitsu - could come also from the phonetic way (the way it sounds when said) and writing according to this in "romaji"...

Waiting for the more lingually oriented to clarify

@ Begin of the thread:
"Arie Van Akker" is quite well known in the Martial Arts scene here in Flanders and the Netherlands... and only because he is quite a dubious person.
He claims a lot of things he can't live up to. And yes, he's an "Ashida Kimmer".

(grrr... where is that edit button gone?)

IMHO:
@ jUtsu/jItsu: it would help if one would stop just trying to write phonetically. That doesn't work.
Kanji aren't easily transcribed directly. Yet, there is another means of transcribing!
First write the kanji down in kana! Katakana or hiragana doesn't matter. Kana makes it clear how it's to be pronounced correctly AND how it is best written in Hebonshiki Rōmaji.

Thus:
"術" spells "じゅつ" in hiragana. That makes it "jutsu" in hebonshiki rōmaji.
