The Ryōzanpaku Dojo is home to elite fighters, who each specialize in different styles of martial arts. The dojo is famous for its powerful members and is often challenged by other dojos or single fighters. Due to this, Ryōzanpaku charges its challengers and actually has a waiting list; this caused Kenichi to call them 'Dojo hunters'.
Even though they charge, the dojo still lacks money. To compensate for this, the members of the dojo often use their creativity in several things, including using an uncharted island for vacation and building their own boat and cottage.
During the YOMI arc Ryōzanpaku Dojo goes bankrupt. The master's job doesn't produce enough money, so they take little children as paid students for a few weeks for extra money.
Despite being immeasurably powerful, the masters of Ryōzanpaku are very odd and eccentric. They are all prone to immature behavior. They also have trouble interacting with normal people due to the fact that they unconsciously release massive amounts of ki. They are shown to be lazy procrastinators as only Kōetsuji and Ma are shown to bring in any steady income. Those two are rarely seen doing anything when they aren't training Kenichi.
