Do is based on the todi technique of kaishu-naiko-ho (an
open-hand method designed to develop inner power or ki).
Shuri-ti is known for its sharp, agile and very quick
techniques. For its part, Naha-ti is famous for its
powerful defensive and attacking techniques. Chito-Ryu
is the karate created by Chinen Kinchoku (Tsuyoshi Chitose)
to incorporate the strengths, and avoid the weaknesses,
of Shuri-ti and Naha-ti. Ryusei Karate-Do was developed
to incorporate the essence of both todi and Chito-Ryu,
and to become a legitimate part of their lineages.
