The two styles that form Shito-Ryu are Shuri-te from Master Itosu and Naha-te style from Master Higaonna. Because Shito-Ryu was created from two different styles, it gives the practitioner much more to study. It is rich in lineage, has the widest variety of kata (forms) among the Japanese styles, and practices the principles of both styles. Shito-Ryu is among the 4 major styles of Karate-Do in Japan and the world today.
