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 the main martial arts sparring matches my three personal platonic pairings revolving around Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran. Once again, they are Sesshoumaru and Shuran; Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta; and Ayame and Shunran.
We have now come to this, ladies and gentlemen, the main martial art sparring matches that my three favourite Splendid Seven platonic pairings Sesshoumaru and Shuran; Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta; and Ayame and Shunran specialise in the most. This time, I am elevating things with main martial arts that I believe are the most deadly and can cause the most amount of collateral damage against their opponents per platonic pairing. With that said, let the blows fly and the camaraderie commence.
Sesshoumaru and Shuran: Mixed Martial Arts vs Vale Tudo
With Sesshoumaru’s precise use of Shotokan Karate, Goju-Ryu Karate, and Shito-Ryu Karate in Mixed Martial Arts as well as Shuran’s great use of Combat Sambo, Pro-Wrestling, and Sumo Wrestling in Vale Tudo, these two powerhouses are at an advantage when combining Sesshoumaru’s lethally accurate strikes and Shuran’s brutally strong grapples. Furthermore, the respect, moral support, dedication, and allegiance they would have for each other as combatants and as individuals compliment the relentless number of attacks they have in store against their hapless opponents who are brazen enough to challenge them.
Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta: Pankration vs Muay Thai vs Lethwei
The sight of Inuyasha’s, Hakkaku’s, and Ginta’s own blood thrills them when they are on the prowl to deliver some serious close-range blows and clinches to their opponents. Inuyasha may be formidable in Kyokushin Karate, Seidokaikan Karate, and Enshin Karate; Hakkaku may be fierce in Pradal Serey, Panantukan, and Kajukenbo; Ginta may be fearless in Sanda, Jeet Kune Do, and Pencak Silat, but their versatility in their punches, kicks, strikes, and grapples are also incorporated in Pankration, Muay Thai, and Lethwei. Their brotherly sparring sessions together are also filled with integrity, truth, honour, and determination.
Ayame and Shunran: Hapkido vs Shaolin Kung Fu
There is a slight chance that opponents would ever survive when Ayame delivers her powerful punches and incredible kicks and Shunran unleashes her array of kicks, tricking, and strikes. Ayame’s strength and power in Kickboxing, Koppojutsu, and Nippon Kenpo are applied well in Hapkido, while Shunran’s agility and speed in Capoeira, Aikido, and Ninjutsu are well-implemented in Shaolin Kung Fu. What further solidifies Ayame’s and Shunran’s sisterhood is how they build each other up with openness, cooperation, a positive attitude, and resilience to make every punch, kick, and strike have stronger significance as fighters and as individuals.
There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, my three favourite Splendid Seven platonic pairings in the forms of their main martial arts sparring matches. Please let me know in the comments which one is your favourite. Until then, train hard and well, and stay healthy.
