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 delve into my top five platonic pairings revolving around Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran in the form of martial arts sparring matches.
I may have listed my top three favourite Splendid Seven platonic pairings in the form of martial arts sparring matches, but this is a nice opportunity to increase it to five in order to include the other two that I love just as much as the three that I have mentioned. You can already guess what they are. With that said, let us get punching, kicking, clinching, and grappling. Osu!
Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha: The Mighty Karateka Brothers
Fighters from all around the world would concur that Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha Japan’s and the world’s strongest Karateka as well as complete martial artists. These two dog Yokai warrior brothers not only live and breathe Karate, but they have made it their way of life from infancy all the way up to adulthood. Physically, they have the overpowering chokeholds, crushing takedowns, vice-like body locks, brutal punches, quick kicks, rapid reflexes, and super strength to do collateral damage towards all of their opponents. Characteristically, they have a brotherhood based on perseverance, courage, dedication, cooperation, and synergy.

Sesshoumaru and Shuran: The Lethal Grappler Brothers
Joint locks, headlocks, arm bars, and chokeholds may be the physical heartbeats of Sesshoumaru and Shuran as mighty warriors who would crush their enemies into smithereens, but it is their sense of balance, respect, and teamwork that seal the deal with this duo. Alone, Sesshoumaru is a complete martial artist rife with precision, stamina, and formidability, while Shuran is a literal and figurative powerhouse ready to crush, smash, and annihilate thanks to his imposing size and brute strength. Together, they would use their strength and stamina to give their opponents a one-way ticket to a painfully quick defeat.

Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta: The Dynamic Executor Brothers
What happens when a wrestler known for his brute strength in his grappling teams up with two strikers known for their devastating clinches? A trio of dynamic and versatile fighters would form who would combine strength and quick reaction time in order to annihilate their foes who dare underestimate them. Any sane person would not want to incite violence against them, for they can deliver one powerful punishment by virtue of Shuran’s submission holds, Hakkaku’s knee and elbow strikes, and Ginta’s punches and kicks. This is also combined with the insurmountable support they have for each other as loving brothers.
  • Vale Tudo vs Muay Thai vs Lethwei
  • Combat Sambo vs Pradal Serey vs Sanda
  • Professional Wrestling vs Kajukenbo vs Jeet Kune Do
  • Sumo Wrestling vs Panantukan vs Pencak Silat
  • Mongolian Wrestling vs Dambe vs Eagle Claw Kung Fu
  • Pehlwani vs Moraingy vs Hwa Rang Do
  • Ssireum vs Taekkyeon vs Tang Soo Do
Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta: The Bloody Clincher Brothers
Is there a moment where fighters do not feel terrified whenever Inuyasha, Hakkaku, and Ginta get uncomfortably close to them in order to rain a series of blows? No. This is because these three brothers can do seriously irreparable physical damage to their opponents thanks to their bone-shattering punches, devastating kicks, paralysing elbow strikes, pulsating knee strikes, hard-hitting headbutts, crushing clinches, and explosive close-range combat, thus leaving them drenched in their opponents’ blood. Overlooking their brutality, they have an inseparable fraternal bond that has seen them grow phenomenally in strength and wisdom.

  • Bokator vs Pradal Serey vs Sanda
  • American Kenpo Karate vs Kajukenbo vs Jeet Kune Do
  • Ancient Greek Boxing vs Panantukan vs Pencak Silat

  • Kudo Karate vs Moraingy vs Hwa Rang Do
  • Shaolin Kempo Karate vs Taekkyeon vs Tang Soo Do
Ayame and Shunran: The Flexible Striker Sisters
Punch, block, kick, and charge into action with Ayame and Shunran, for their strikes are renowned for their accuracy, lethalness, and indubitably high impact. Ayame’s iron fists and Shunran’s lightning kicks are a mighty combined force to be reckoned with, thus making their opponents bleeding, bruised, and broken in nearly every single body part. This is evidenced when Ayame uses her uppercuts, jabs, cross punches, reverse punches, and hooks and Shunran uses her roundhouse kicks, spinning kicks, flying double kicks, and flip kicks to do near permanent damage to their enemies in an effortless manner. Furthermore, Ayame’s and Shunran’s sisterly bond is abundant in encouragement, compassion, and unconditional love.
  • Kickboxing vs Capoeira
  • Hapkido vs Savate
  • Boxing vs Wing Chun
  • Nippon Kenpo vs Shaolin Kung Fu
  • Shorinji Kenpo vs Northern Praying Mantis Kung Fu
  • Koppojutsu vs Aikido
  • Taido vs Ninjutsu
