Hock's right on the Aikijutsu thing. The Japanese martial arts are VERY traditional and strict about lineage and following tradition to the letter. Schools that modernize or Westernize, even if it is simply not acting like you are Japanese and living in Japan, are often flamed.
While there is the real issue of guys like Ashida Kim and the numerous Youtube "ninja" and "samurai," for the most part these dopes are just Youtube freaks and don't have real schools. Most of the criticism of Japanese systems being "Americanized" is just being petty. I've seen posts complaining about people wearing hats and sunglasses when training outdoors, for example. Others complain about Americans wearing a regular gi and not hakama. They complain about people using anything other than a traditionally hand-forged sword costing thousands of dollars. If they saw you teaching knife techniques they'd complain about you using "just a Ka-Bar" and not a $3,000.00 tanto.
Another issue would be that a practical Aikijutsu DVD could be seen by some people as copying Mike Janich since he just released a DVD titled "Junkyard Aikido."
An easy way around all this would be to just use the generic "Jujutsu" label since arts like Aikijutsu and Taijutsu could be seen as types of Jujutsu. They'd certainly be closer to Japanese Jujutsu than BJJ is.
Then again, it would also be easy to ignore posters on such forums.
Speaking of Bonsai, lots of these types consider traditional Japanese hobbies like Bonsai and flower arrainging to be things to put on their martial arts qualifications. They'd go to a seminar by someone with those activitied listed on their resume over someone with firearms training or training in other arts. I don't think modern Japanese hobbies like anime and manga count.
