Masami Chinen (知念 正実 Chinen Masami?, 1898-1976) was an Okinawan martial arts master who formed Yamani ryu. He taught Bōjutsu privately at his home in the village of Tobaru, in Shuri, Okinawa.

Life[edit]

Like many martial arts masters Chinen had been a policeman. During the Second World War he lived with the martial arts master Horoku Ishikawa in Tainan, Taiwan.[3] He also worked at the Shuri City Hall in Shuri, Okinawa.[4]

Yamani Ryu Bōjutsu[edit]

Chinen named the style after his father Sanda Chinen who was also a teacher of Bōjutsu and known as Yamani USUMEI and Yamane TANMEI.[1]

Legacy[edit]

Although the style ceased to exist after his death some of his katas were preserved by Seitoku Higa of the Bugeikan and Shūgorō Nakazato of Shōrin-ryū.[1] Another student of Chinen's, Chogi Kishaba and his student Toshihiro Oshiro also privately practised Yamani Ryu katas. Oshiro teaches Bōjutsu today [5] and so does Chinen's grandnephew Teruo Chinen.[4]
