History
Tegumi (手組) or Muto (武当) is a traditional form of wrestling from Okinawa.
According to Shoshin Nagamine, in his "Tales of Okinawa's Great Masters", there are no accurate historical documents surrounding the origins of grappling in Okinawa. It seems that tegumi evolved from a primitive form of grappling self-defense, which was constantly being adapted and enhanced as it was exposed to outside influences.
Known as tegumi in Naha, and muto in Tomari and Shuri, Okinawan wrestling remained a popular cultural recreation until the Taisho period (1912 1925).

Style
It is believed by some, Nagamine included, that tegumi was probably the original form of fighting in Okinawa and, as it was enhanced by striking and kicking techniques imported from China, became the progenitor of Te, which is the foundation of modern karate.
