The Sumimura Tenketsu

The Sumimura Family (墨村の家族) (or Clan) is one of two legitimate families created by Tokimori Hazama to succeed the Hazama-Ryu Kekkai technique because he had no Heirs of his own. Sumimura Kekkaishi tend to be powerhouses, and often employ strategies that either overwhelm enemies with sheer force[1], or outlast them in battles of attrition.[2]
