comment How and when martial art was originated, who originated it?
As interesting as the question is, it is too broad to be answered in its current form. I don't think you can have a really comprehensive answer here since a proper answer would be something entire books are written for. See the faq for more information.

comment Does Krav Maga have any roots of Aikido?
Then perhaps narrow your question down to a select part of the video, list them out, name the common moves, give some description of what you're asking. We've gone through this in another question, and I've explained my reasoning extensively in a meta post (see also the comments and the chat links). If anything, we can request YouTube embedding if it would benefit the community here, but the video by itself shouldn't be the question.

comment history of Jujitsu?
I think a better question is why doesn't a single definitive historical resource exist. Your question leans too much on polling for various answers which doesn't fit the Q&A model of Stack Exchange.
