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 184.108.40.206 (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)
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)
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. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 23:55, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
