Mabuni’s Family Emblem

Shitoryu Logo

… This logo belongs to Kenwa Mabuni’s family, showing harmony, and two Person (hito in Japanese) who are related together and cooperated in order to keep the Peace in the world. 
The name ‘Shito‘ is the combination of ‘shi’  and ‘to‘  , the two first characters of the names of Master Itosu and Master Higaonna .

After Master Mabuni died, this sign has been selected as the SHITO RYU KARATE DO emblem to express intent of the founder of this style.
