Oyata Sensei

Ryu Te®

Ryu Te® is a traditional form of karate from the Ryukyu Islands (Okinawa) developed by Taika Seiyu Oyata. It emphasizes self-defense through the application of the Protection Arts which include the prudent use of pressure point strikes, joint locking, and the exploitation of the body’s natural weak points to control an attacker.

Techniques are learned through the study of katas, weapons katas and movement exercises. These techniques can be applied by anyone, regardless of age, size, sex, or strength.
