What is the oldest Japanese martial art?

It would be very hard to specifically come up with a branch. They all have roots in the martial arts of 100's of years ago. Karate came from Okinawa and elements of it were merged with Japanese and Korean arts to become what we know as karate today. The kata for karate came from Okinawa and was based on a number of Chinese forms from kung fu. Until recently the kata learned in Tang So Do and Taikwondo were those from Japanese Shotokan karate, which was a variation of Shorin Ryu from Okinawa.
