In the beginning, a small group of friends got together to create the best martial arts performance short money could buy. They did it - not by dreaming up what could be - but by asking the elite athletes who would wear it what it should be.
During this quest, we discovered a multi-dimensional athlete - one who redefines what is humanly possible. They live by an unspoken code - strength, honor, respect and sustainability. And from this way of life, RYU was born.
Today, every product we make stands up to the daily rigors of each athlete who wears RYU. It moves where it's supposed to move, and when it needs to stay put, it does. It may wick. It may warm or cool. It's technical excellence. Recycled materials. It's a high performance product line using specialized fabrics and construction with patented design innovations, because the warrior in all of us has demands.
