First I must say, I don't know much about any other than the style I train in. Ryu Kyu Kobujutsu Hozon Shink Kai.

But I heared about some other styles. Yamane Ryu, Matayoshi Kobudo.

The big names I keep hearing are Matayoshi and Shinken Taira.

Are these to only styles and are there more big names that I might find interesting?

I'ld like to search a bit into the beginning and the fathers of kobudo.

Can you help me a little further?

Yamani , Matayoshi, and Ryukyu are the largest surviving kobudo systems today, however i know that there is still small systems such as Village Kobudo as taught by Hohan Soken which is still preserved.

recently heard of a kobujutsu system being taught in the UK called Itosu Ryu Kobudo. I think the katas that they study are primarily of ryukyu origin. I didnt find much more on them.

I recently heard of a style called 'tesshinkan'. It is trained in germany somewhere, if I understood well. Don't know anything more, maybe I can find some more info.

The Ryukyu splits in Inoue and Akamine. Tesshinkan is a version of the Akamine lineage.

Yes I study most of those as well with a few exception because we include Matayoshi Kobudo kata, as well as a few Village Kobudo kata into our curriculum as well. We also study the Nunte-bo and Eku (kai)

I train in a style of Ryu Kyu also. It's similar to the list posted above, plus or minus a few things.
I would imagine that most of the Okinawan styles are very similar with a few stylistic differences of course. This makes sense being a small island and considering much of what was taught seems to be originally derived from only a few sources.
If you're looking for historical information on Okinawan Kobudo you'll most likely find that it has not been directly connected to empty-hand arts for many generations, and that much of it is a modified form brought over from China.
