Greetings, Splendid Seven devotees, martial arts aficionados, and fighting video game fans. Antoni here with another written entry focusing on Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran specialising in the martial arts they do. Today, we are delving into the nicknames that define Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran as martial artists and as individuals.
Whether one is an athlete in the Olympics or a fighter in the arena, it seems like second nature to have a moniker that appropriately and, to an extent, perfectly describes the individual and their skills. This is what also makes them stand out against their competitors and leave a hallmark based on high self-esteem and hard training. For Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran, their monikers are more than just titles, they are badges of honour that they were with pride, distinction, and reverence.
Sesshoumaru: The Lord Executioner of Death
Dragons and demons better be prepared to be slain by Sesshoumaru’s punches, kicks, and grapples because he can do all of that and more, showing no mercy whatsoever. With his extensive background in Karate (Shotokan, Shito-Ryu, Goju-Ryu, Shorin-Ryu, Shorei-Ryu, Motobu-Ryu, and Uechi-Ryu), Jujitsu, Shootfighting, Judo, Taekwondo, Mixed Martial Arts, and Marine Corps Martial Arts, Sesshoumaru would never hesitate to serve his opponents a meal consisting of a roundhouse kick to the head, hook and cross punches to the chest and stomach, an arm bar, and a chokehold, all with a side of honour, decorum, and reverence.
Shuran: The Grappling Sasquatch of Voracity
There is no wrestling ring, no MMA cage, and no underground arena potent enough to contain this hulking Panther Yokai of a fighter known as Shuran. As a professional wrestler who focuses on Pro Wrestling, Ssireum, Mongolian Wrestling, Sumo Wrestling, Malla-yuddha, Pehlwani, Sambo, and Vale Tudo, he does not hold back on his brutal grapples that leave his foes with broken bones, frightened looks, and damaged psyches. Just one bearhug and stranglehold from Shuran complete with ground and pound attacks, knee strikes, and one a huge palm strike to the face and it is all over before his opponents know it.
Inuyasha: The Psycho Bludgeoner of Bloodshed
As fighters can already see, Inuyasha is known for his powerful blows and takedowns that make mortal men weak in the knees. His expertise in Full Contact Karate (Kyokushin, Seidokaikan, Wado-Ryu, Ashihara, Budokan, Enshin, and Gosoku-Ryu), American Kenpo Karate, Pankration, Ancient Greek Wrestling, Ancient Greek Boxing, Bokator, and Kapu Kuialua all denote his euphoric ecstasy in getting close to his opponents with a scary grin, raining a series of uppercuts, Superman punches, and axe kicks, then finishing his opponents off with a double axe handle and a piledriver that could permanently hospitalise them.
Hakkaku: The Charging Bullet of Ferocity
With his knees of steel, shins of iron, elbows of stone, and will of platinum, Hakkaku springs into action to launch a series of strikes and clinches to paralyse his foes inside and out. His striking and clinching are evident in his boundless penchant for Muay Thai, Pradal Serey, Kajukenbo, Panantukan, Dambe, Moraingy, and Taekkyeon, which he does with passion, drive, and determination. Hakkaku would unleash a cavalcade of knee strikes, elbow strikes, shin kicks, punches, and kicks in order to make his opponents fall like banana trees.
Ginta: The Speeding Acid Rain of Chaos
Speed, agility, endurance, and quick reflexes are the hallmarks of Ginta’s capabilities as a warrior who never quits even when the chips are all down. His rapid speed is incredibly evident in his skills in Lethwei, Sanda, Jeet Kune Do, Pencak Silat, Hwa Rang Do, Tang Soo Do, and Eagle Claw Kung Fu to the point where he uses his fists, feet, elbows, knees, shins, and even head to do his foes in. He would do this by unleashing a powerful flying kick to the head and proceed to whale it on them with elbow strikes, knee strikes, and shin kicks before culminating it all with one potent headbutt to make his opponent fall.
Ayame: The Tiger Queen of Furious Fists
Mighty fists of iron, a steely will, Herculean strength, Mercurial speed, and bundles of confidence do not even begin to illustrate how much of a figurative and literal powerhouse Ayame really is. With her unparalleled prowess in Dutch, American, and Japanese-Style Kickboxing, Savate, Boxing, Koppojutsu, Hapkido, Nippon Kenpo, Shorinji Kenpo, Taido, Aikido, and Krav Maga, she never misses an opportunity to rain blows on perpetrators. She could very well attack her opponent with a rainstorm of jabs, uppercuts, hooks, cross punches, leopard blows, and spinning backfists and emerge as the victor to high acclaim.
Shunran: The Fiery Angel of Tricking Treats
Tricking, kicking, flipping, leaping, striking, and flying through the air with the greatest of ease is Shunran whose physical flexibility and ambidexterity are nothing short of miraculously phenomenal. Her experience in Capoeira, Shaolin Kung Fu, Ninjutsu, Wing Chun, Savate, Koppojutsu, Systema, Wushu, Baguazhang, and Northern Praying Mantis Kung Fu demonstrate her prodigious speed and accurate timing. This is demonstrated when she launches her flip kicks, spinning hook kicks, butterfly kicks, spinning back kicks, split kicks, backfists, and knife hands against her opponent, all while performing dance-like gymnastics.
With monikers that define The Splendid Seven in terms of martial arts skills and personalities, they are a definite shoe-in for emitting honour to themselves, their families, their mentors, and their martial arts institutes. Enemies better beware when these seven powerful Yokai martial artists are on the prowl because they wear their monikers with pride, dignity, and integrity.
If you agree with Sesshoumaru’s, Shuran’s, Inuyasha’s, Hakkaku’s, Ginta’s, Ayame’s, and Shunran’s monikers, please let me know in the comments below. Stay fit and kick butt, everybody.
