"The art of Shito-Ryu was founded in 1929 by my father MABUNI KENWA. ....... with its headquarters in Osaka, Japan. Now we have many branches spread throughout the world. As my father's successor, I have dedicated myself to preserving his teachings and the legacy of Shito-Ryu."
"I hope that you enjoy your visit to this Website. The strength of our art is measured by the commitment, hard work, and character of all our members."
