Best Answer

First its Jujutsu not jujitsu or juijitsu, those are old and incorrect pronouciations for jujutsu. The oldest surviving school of Jujutsu is Takenoichi ryu Jujutsu founded in 1532. Brazilian Juijitsu was founded by the Gracie's and it comes from Judo. Judo was founded in 1882 by Jigoro Kano. So Japanese Jujutsu was first.
