Take a look at the video from the Okinawa Traditional Karate Liaison Bureau and then read the footnotes first: http://okkb.org/?page_id=1159 and http://okkb.org/?page_id=1367
I was always under the impression the three main systems that were derived from the indigenous system of fighting on Okinawa, Ti or Te, morphed into the three main villages or cities; Naha, Shuri and Tomari. It would seem that this may need a bit of tweaking. I would be interested to see how others interpret this new view, to westerners anyway, of Okinawan as to traditional karate.
It would appear that there was a village called Tomari but it was incorporated into Naha district, not necessarily the city of Naha, which was comprised of Tomari and two others Kume and Kumoji.
So, my question is this, is it still Tomari-te or is it actually Kume-te? The reason I ask is I believe the impression I got from this short episode of karate is that Kume was a center of many things political therefore could or should or maybe was the actual third city to be influential toward the indigenous fighting art of Okinawa? Is Tomari before Kume and that is why it is the three main systems of karate and later influenced by the Kume Chinese delegates?
