Tenjin Shin'yō-ryū (天神真楊流), literally meaning "Divine True Willow School", can be classified as a traditional school (koryū) of jujutsu. It was founded by Iso Mataemon Minamoto no Masatari in the 1830s. Once a very popular jujutsu system in Japan, among the famous students who studied the art were Kano Jigoro, whose modern art of judo was greatly inspired by the Tenjin Shin'yō-ryū, and Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of aikido.
