Ti (手) is the ancient Okinawan martial art, which preceded modern Karate. The evolution of Ti still continues today.
Onaga Yoshimitsu Kaichō, the founder of the Shinjinbukan school in Okinawa, is a Tichikayā: a person who holds the knowledge of Ti.
Our Shibu - Shinjinbukan Europe is a group of Shinjinbukan branches and affiliates dedicated to pursue the training of Onaga no Ti (Onaga's Ti)
Our Mission is to maintain the same high quality standards given to us by Onaga Yoshimitsu Kaichō at the Shinjinbukan Honbu Dōjō in Okinawa.
The Shinjinbukan European Association / Shinjinbukan Europe brings together only Shinjinbukan branches recognized by Onaga Kaichō. Our annual registration report to the Shinjinbukan Honbu Dōjō in Okinawa includes all active Shinjinbukan instructors, students and Shinjinbukai Affilliates in Latvia, France, Germany and Ukraine.
