Motobu ha Shito Ryu - Banner Size 940x198


A Brief History

Shito-ryu was founded in 1929 by Kenwa Mabuni. Mabuni named the style by combining the first kanji of each of his two main instructors. These influential men were Kanryo Higashionna and Anko Itosu.


Motobu-ha Shito-ryu was founded in 1959 when Kuniba Shogo succeeded his father and became the third Soke of Ryukyu Motobu-ha Karate-do. Kuniba Shogo blended Motobu-ha Karate-do with the teachings of Shito-ryu, founding Motobu-ha Shito-Ryu. Kuniba Shogo was a personal student of Kenwa Mabuni.
