Translated from Japanese Ten means heaven. Ten is a part of a triangle proportion heaven (ten), person (hito) and earth (chi).

The kata Ten-i[edit]

Ten-i no kata is a kata, which was used as basic kata during the experimental period of Genseiryu. To mature the style of Genseiryu, it was decided to discard the kata, together with Chi-i and Jin-i.

Nowadays one can see its varieties by styles derivated from Genseiryu, like Ryounkai, Genwakai and Seidokai.
