Tenjin Shin'y -ry , literally meaning "Divine True Willow School", can be classified as a traditional school (kory ) of jujutsu. It was founded by Iso Mataemon Minamoto no Masatari in the 1830s. Once a very popular jujutsu system in Japan, among the famous students who studied the art were Kano Jigoro, whose modern art of judo was greatly inspired by the Tenjin Shin'y -ry , and Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of aikido.Essentially, Tenjin Shinyo-ryu is the amalgamation of two separate systems of jujutsu: the Y shin-ry and Shin no Shinto-ryu. The distinctive feature of this particular school is the use of atemi or strikes to disrupt the balance of the opponent as well as a more flexible and flowing movement of the body than seen in some older schools of jujutsu.
