All members of the United States Chito-ryu Karate Federation shall be guided by the insight of Doctor
Tsuyoshi Chitose (O-Sensei) whose dedication established our past, whose genius determines our present, and whose
vision shapes our future. We will preserve his place in karate history. We shall preserve the kata and techniques
of our style's founder, O-Sensei, and guide our students in the development of the proper spirit and technique as
established by William J. and Barbara E. Dometrich (U.S. Chito-kai founders), and as interpreted by the U.S.
Shihan-kai and taught by the U.S. Chief Instructor and promulgate Chito-ryu wherever possible.
