Shinjinbukan no Keitō − The Shinjinbukan Lineage

The Shinjinbukan School was founded by Onaga Yoshimitsu Kaichō to preserve the traditions of Ti (ティー), the ancient Okinawan Martial Art, which preceded modern Karate.  During the early 20th century, the first Karate styles were created to simplify the teaching process, because most teachers lacked the knowledge of Ti

From a historical perspective, Ti practitioners consider themselves as those "holding on to the roots of Karate".  And just like the roots sustain a tree, then, "Ti are the roots that sustain the tree of Karate".  On the other hand, styles or ryūha, are only like flowers that live for a short time.  And just like flowers, all styles eventually die or become watered down and meaningless after the founder of each style or lineage passes on.

Listed below, is the Shinjinbukan lineage going back three generations before Onaga Yoshimitsu Kaichō.  The new generation is listed at the top, because according to Onaga Sensei, Ti must always continue the process of evolution. Therefore, today's Karate must be better than that of 100 years ago. Today's Ti practitioners must be better than those of the past.
