Shito – Ryu Karate

Shito-Ryu is a traditional form of karate developed in Japan.  It is most described as a combination of Shotokan, a style of linear movements, and Goju-Ryu a style of more rounded movements. It is also generally known that its teachers utilise formal exercises (kata) from many Okinawa sources.

  • Shito-Ryu
  • Shotokan
  • Goji-Ryu
  • Waju-Ryu

The name Shito-Ryu was created by combining the names of the two masters responsible for the beginnings of the Shito-Ryu style.  Shito-Ryu was developed and passed on from Master Anko Itosu and Master Kanryu Higaonna.
