When you created Jinen Ryű, what was the purpose behind creating a new art?

Greetings! :)

Since my question is related to the above question of Rahul, I will add mine to his(I hope you do not mind Rahul...:) )

I would like to first thank Manaka sensei for his time with us. I would also ask:

1) From what Ryu-ha does the material that is included in the Jinen-Ryu come from? Does the Jinen-Ryu contain any material from the Takamatsu-den?

2) What areas of Bujutsu does the Jinen-Ryu cover? Does it include Ninpo/Ninjutsu or is it just Budo/Bujutsu in general?

Manaka-sensei, thank you in advance for your time and reply on this matter.

Best wishes and prosperity on your path always,

Fumio Manaka

The Jinen-Ryu organizes many things which I was taught or learned over many years of training but which had no specific form. It also is intended to teach my way of thinking about Budo.

The Jinen-Ryu does not include any kata from other Ryu-ha. It includes methods for Kusarifundo, Tanto, Jutte, Tessen, Ken, Eda Koppo and Nito (two swords).
