Ryu began studying the martial art Ansatsuken at the age of 4. He began travelling the wold at the age of 18, winning numeous tounements and getting thown out of even more numerous all you can eat places. Now at the ripe age of 42 he has taken a teaching position at prime_education.
Ryu is actually the intekllectual property of the fine folks at CAPCOM, and I make no claim to him whatsoever. I'm just having fun here, guys.
