Ryute Renmei is Okinawa-Te—classical karate from Okinawa. It focuses on the both open-hand and weapon training, and places great emphasis on mediation and good character. Using often unseen interpretations of motions buried deep within kata, Ryute Renmei focuses on Kyusho Jitsu (“vital force striking”) and Tuite Jitsu (grappling) for effective life protection. This is a lifelong path of self-discovery.
