"Grandmaster Ito is one of the greats. There are martial art studios everywhere, but Robert Ito makes you earn your progress. Every belt level has a series of theories and attitudes within his system. The theories are physical building blocks you must surpass (balance, power, etc). The attitudes are what you must incorporate within your practice. Mr. Ito believes strongly in the classic "Mind, Body, Spirit" idioms of the old masters. He has trained with some of the top Hanshis in the world." ~ Pi M.
