Merge with Naha-te and Tomari-te[edit]

The result was merge into Okinawan martial arts. -- Scott Alter 17:13, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Currently, Naha-te and Tomari-te are stubs, and there is no Shuri-te article. I think that these three styles of Te should be merged into Okinawan martial arts. It would make this article more complete. If the content about Naha-te, Shuri-te, and Tomari-te is ever expanded, they could be moved back to their own articles. --Scott Alter 00:22, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Support I agree - good idea.

Where's the mentioning of Issun-Ryu? I'm not sure if I spelled it right, but I practiced it for three or four years, as well as a tad of two other accompanying styles. One of them was called something like "Gorun-Ryu" and I forget the other. I'm surprised that they are not mentioned here, or practically anywhere for that matter. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:52, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Are you sure it wasn't Isshin-ryū (a 1956 synthetic style with okinawan base)? There are 8 google hits for "issun-ryu" and no hits for "gorun-ryu" --Cubbi (talk) 15:04, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
As with many other styles developed during the 1900's, Isshin-ryu was built on the base of two other styles, Shorin-ryu and Goju-ryu. Noxia (talk) 11:11, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Matsumora-ryū Kōtokukai[edit]

Can anyone offer more information on this style? Some references for notability would be important before including it in this article. User5802 (talk) 00:42, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Effects of Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia[edit]

The article contains references to the Chinese influence on martial arts development. When discussing the effects of other countries, one should add references to support the facts. jmcw (talk) 16:56, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Country but not a country?[edit]

How can a country not be a country if it was a country? I don't mean to insult the writer but that is poor grammar. It would be proper to state that Okinawa is an island in a chain of islands, and then describe Ryukyu as a Kingdom that existed until 1875. That seems to be one large run on sentence.
