Precepts of Chito-Ryu Karate-do
- Karate-do must never be something we ourselves initiate.
- Karate-do must only be used in Self-Defense.
–Dr. Tsuyoshi Chitose, founder of Chito-Ryu Karate in his post-humously published book Kempo Karate-do
Dr. Chitose believed a regimen of Kihon (basic skills and exercises), the practice of Kata (pre-arranged forms) and Kumite (partner work), could distill the noble essence of human consciousness.
Leadership, inclusiveness and creativity will be core concepts in all of Martial Paths programs.
