Welcome to the Ryu Toushi Academy of Martial Arts and Self Defense Training Systems.  Grandmaster Dr. Al Catron and Grandmaster
Dr. Lawrence Day opened the first martial arts dojo in Georgetown Kentucky and Cynthiana Kentucky in the mid 1970's teaching the art of
Shaolin Do.  Having extensive training and knowledge in the arts of Shaolin Do, Ko Sutemi Seiei Kan, and Long GIn Shi (Shotokan),
Grandmaster Al Catron combined these systems to form what is now known as Ryu Toushi.

The art of Ryu Toushi is defined and translates into "Traditional Fighting".  Ryu Toushi offers it's students the traditional kata and fighting
forms while at the same time adapting to the defensive needs of todays ever changing society.  Students not only learn traditional kata
forms, they also learn the hidden techniques each kata represents. The Ryu Toushi Academy of Martial Arts and Self Defense Training
Systems has grown over the years to now offer its students a wide variety of martial arts disciplines from which they can choose to study.
