Monks are not thought to have created karate. There were some that went to Okinawa and taught some aspects of Kung Fu to the Ryu Kyu King's guards that were merged into the local Wrestling to create what we now know as karate.

Sokkon Matsumura is the earliest name that we have. Karate was passed down from father to son for many generations before that. It was a blend of the local Okinawa fighting techniques with Chinese Kung Fu.
