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, I will be delving into my favourite platonic pairings revolving around Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran in the forms of the martial arts they spar in. Mind you, these platonic pairings are of the same gender, which means that men spar with men and women spar with women.
Barely three months ago, I made a similar entry to this. However, looking back at it, I was not completely satisfied with it, as I was relying more on nostalgia, and some of the martial arts I gave them were not as fully realised as I thought they were. Furthermore, lumping the platonic and the romantic pairings together was not really that clever. Nevertheless, I present to you my favourite Splendid Seven platonic pairings and the martial arts they do together as a means of sparring and staying fit and well for each other.
Ayame and Shunran: The Stupendous Striker Sisters
Tenacity, drive, confidence, determination, dedication, cooperation, and discipline are what make a pair of gorgeous sisters such as Ayame and Shunran truly beautiful and stunning on the inside and on the outside. Overlooking how gorgeously vivacious these two auburn-haired beauties are, they also possess quickly timed strikes so fatal that they can result in an instant knockout against their opponents. Ayame has the furious fists to perfectly compliment Shunran’s fleet feet to harmonious effect. When they put their potent and agile fists, elbows, knees, shins, legs, and feet to phenomenal use, it is all over for their opponents.

Hakkaku and Ginta: The Clinching and Striking Brothers
These two wolf Yokai brothers may seem fun-loving, goofy, positively energetic, and bursting with jolly ebullience, but they should never be underestimated let alone have their jolliness be sorely mistaken for weakness. They are in possession of speedy clinches, elbow strikes, knee strikes, shin kicks, and headbutts that could do serious damage to their opponents. Considering they have found themselves competing in Thailand, Myanmar, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines among other countries, Hakkaku and Ginta have an unmistakable speed, ambidexterity, strength, and agility that have made them so renowned.

  • Taekkyeon vs Eagle Claw Kung Fu
  • Panantukan vs Pencak Silat

Sesshoumaru and Shuran: The Mighty Grappler Brothers
The ground is not only home to Shuran when it comes to giving his opponents a good chokehold and stranglehold but also to Sesshoumaru whose grappling work is just as deadly as Shuran’s is. Leverage, joint manipulation, and body locks are the name of their games when they spar together, thus testing each others’ endurance and extent to see how far they can go in order to make their foes turn black and blue. They would even compliment each other in significant ways where Sesshoumaru’s low and slow approach to Shuran’s brutal strangulation approach can guarantee an instant lights out to their foes.

Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha: The Karate Master Brothers
From infancy to boyhood to adolescence to adulthood, these two dog Yokai brothers have been brought up on Jujitsu, Judo, Taekwondo and Karate, with the latter martial art reigning supreme. Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s father, Toga, is a master Karateka who has also been their Sensei ever since they were toddlers to the point where Karate has been their tradition. Their mastery of Kihon, Kata, and Kumite saw them grow with fortitude, honour, and brotherhood, as both of them are proud to have seen each other grow as martial artists and as people all while unleashing devastating blows against a huge crowd of opponents.

  • Shorei-Ryu Karate vs Budokan Karate
Sesshoumaru, Shuran, and Inuyasha: The Ground and Pound Attack Bro Trio
If there is one attribute that has brought Sesshoumaru, Shuran, and Inuyasha together, it has to be their love for ground and pound attacks, relentlessly brutal takedowns, and earth-shattering chokeholds of doom. The strength and leverage they possess when it comes to their takedowns make them worthy adversaries thanks to Sesshoumaru’s lethal accuracy, Shuran’s brute strength, and Inuyasha’s muscular endurance. Physical power aside, these two powerful dog Yokai warriors and mighty panther Yokai warrior bear a brotherhood rich in solidarity, interpersonal fortitude, and boundless perseverance on and off the arena.

Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta: The Clinching Knockout Bro Trio
Shuran may be primarily a grappler, Hakkaku and Ginta may be primarily clinchers and strikers, but they can find balance and cooperation by working together so effectively in terms of combining Shuran’s strength, Hakkaku’s speed, and Ginta’s balance. As soon as Shuran’s strength is combined with Hakkaku’s speed and Ginta’s balance, they become a fearsome tank ready for the heat of battle. One favourite method they would do involves Shuran locking the opponent in a strangulating chokehold. Once accomplished, Hakkaku and Ginta would proceed to beat the opponent up with a myriad of strikes.
  • Vale Tudo vs Muay Thai vs Lethwei
  • Sambo vs Pradal Serey vs Sanda
  • Pro Wrestling vs Kajukenbo vs Jeet Kune Do
  • Ssireum vs Taekkyeon vs Hwa Rang Do
  • Mongolian Wrestling vs Panantukan vs Tang Soo Do
  • Pehlwani vs Dambe vs Pencak Silat
  • Malla-yuddha vs Moraingy vs Eagle Claw Kung Fu
Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta: The Full Contact Takedown Bro Trio
Power, speed, and balance unite in precise timing and oodles of stamina when Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta put their fists, elbows, knees, shins, feet, and heads to excellent use. Alone, their punches, kicks, strikes, and clinches are painful. Together, these three can become a devastating lightning bolt of doom. Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta are full contact fighters who revel in getting close to their opponents with huge scary grins on their faces and proceed to whale it on them with a flurry of powerful blows from Superman punches to spinning back kicks to headbutts, reducing their opponents to a bloodily eviscerated mess.
  • Bokator vs Muay Thai vs Lethwei
  • Pankration vs Pradal Serey vs Sanda
  • American Kenpo Karate vs Kajukenbo vs Jeet Kune Do
  • Kyokushin Karate vs Taekkyeon vs Eagle Claw Kung Fu
