Shindo jinen-ryu (?????, Shindo jinen-ryu?) is one of the six original karate schools, or ryu, that were recognized by the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai in the early 1930s. The system was founded by Yasuhiro Konishi, a practitioner of Shindo Yoshin Ryu Jujutsu who trained with many of the first Okinawans to teach karate in Japan. Konishi trained with Gichin Funakoshi (founder of Shotokan-ryu), Kenwa Mabuni (founder of Shito-ryu), Chojun Miyagi (co-founder of Goju-ryu), legendary fighter and teacher Choki Motobu, and Morihei Ueshiba (founder of Aikido).

Konishi’s organization, Japan Karate-Do Ryobu-Kai, has spread worldwide, with branches in more than 20 countries under the leadership of Yasuhiro (Takehiro) Konishi, 10th Dan, and the guidance of Kiyoshi Yamazaki, 8th Dan, International Director and Chief Instructor. Shindo Jinen Ryu draws heavily from both Shotokan and Shito-ryu but also extensively utilizes aikido, jujutsu and kendo principles and techniques, reflecting the founder’s background. Japan Karate-Do Ryobu-Kai is the only organization associated with the six original styles of karate that has never experienced an internal schism, and it remains the sole unifying body for Shindo Jinen Ryu Karate-Do.
