Note: Our website's wood background represents the floor at the Sohonbu (Chito Ryu Headquarters in Kumamoto, Japan). Most of the world's top Chito Ryu practitioners have trained and sweated at the Sohonbu; some so intensely they have worn their own "grooves" into the wood floor. The floorboards have become a symbol of the dedication, commitment and passion for Chito Ryu.
