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 focusing on what I believe are the three deadliest, most lethal, and most explosive martial arts Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran specialise in the most. Get yourselves armed with strength and determination, ladies and gentlemen, this is going to be a full-contact throwdown extravaganza for the ages.
Ever since indulging myself in Fight Science, Fight Quest, Human Weapon, Kill Arman, Karate Combat, the 1995 World Combat Championship, the Rickson Gracie documentary entitled Choke, a bevy of martial arts documentaries, YouTubers specialising in martial arts, and let’s plays of various fighting games including Street Fighter, Tekken, and Karate Master Knockdown Blow, I have become a lot more intrigued with the martial arts world, especially where my fascination for full-contact martial arts increases every single day. This is especially helpful for not only The Splendid Seven but also many other anime characters I would love to incorporate specific martial arts towards as a means to make them be the powerful warriors that they are based on their personalities and their skills. Furthermore, I have been scouring every website and video out there to see what is said to be some of the deadliest martial arts suitable for seven powerful Yokai warriors.
In terms of how I defined three of The Splendid Seven’s deadliest martial arts, I will be judging them on fully close-range contact, devastating impact, and the range in striking, grappling, and takedowns necessary for the martial art to be considered complete. There is no doubt that I will be looking for the tremendous amount of pain and destructive force that Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran are more than willing to deliver. Knowing these seven powerful Yokai warriors, they would definitely do so with pure abandon. With that said, let the fists fly, the joints jostle, and the muscles mash, for Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran are prepared to bring their enemies into a world of unmitigated devastation. And trust me when I say that every attack and counterattack these seven Yokai martial artists commit to is more devastating than the last one they pulled off. Osu! Hajime!
Sesshoumaru: Shootfighting, Mixed Martial Arts, and Marine Corps Martial Arts
Coming from a lengthy background in Karate, Jujitsu, Judo, and Taekwondo, Sesshoumaru bears a great deal of punches, kicks, takedowns, submission holds, elbow strikes, knee strikes, and grapples at his belt to overcome every single foe thanks to his strength, speed, and stamina. Whether he uses jabs, roundhouse kicks, arm bars or foot sweeps, each attack is guaranteed to cause excruciating damage to his opponents. From Shootfighting’s ruthlessly relentless takedowns to Mixed Martial Arts’ viciously bloody attacks to Marine Corps Martial Arts’ lethally rapid reaction time, Sesshoumaru is guaranteed to emerge as the mighty victor.
Shuran: Combat Sambo, Vale Tudo, and Professional Wrestling
Grappling and submission in the forms of Full Nelsons, Boston Crabs, sleeper holds, back-breakers, bearhugs, throws, and, of course, bone-damaging piledrivers are the devastating moves which make Shuran one of the most formidable wrestlers Japan and the world have ever encountered. Thanks to Shuran’s heavyweight size and strength, he is easily at an advantage against those who dare to underestimate him thanks to how he effectively combines grappling and submission with visceral ground and pound attacks. It is no wonder why he is so heavily promoted in the world of Combat Sambo, Vale Tudo, and Pro Wrestling.
Inuyasha: Kapu Kuialua, Pankration, and Bokator
With bundles of experience in Karate, Jujitsu, Judo, Taekwondo, Boxing, Wrestling, and Kickboxing, Inuyasha definitely knows how to propel his huge repertory of punches, kicks, takedowns, grapples, submission holds, elbow strikes, and knee strikes with leverage, power, and explosive ferocity. His favourite attacks are Superman punches, uppercuts, hooks, spinning axe kicks, roundhouse kicks, piledrivers, and chokeholds which are guaranteed to cause irreparably visceral internal damage to all of his opponents. Hence, his mastery in Kapu Kuialua, Pankration, and Bokator makes him a fierce, fearsome, and ferocious combatant.
Hakkaku: Muay Boran, Pradal Serey, and Kajukenbo
Opponents better be prepared to guard their limbs, head, and every part of their body that may be at risk, for Hakkaku can unleash a flurry of visceral punches, kicks, elbow strikes, knee strikes, shin kicks, headbutts, and clinches. Nothing can hold Hakkaku back from inflicting as much devastation to his opponents thanks to his rapid speed, accurate timing, and abundant power in every strike and clinch he commits to. Regardless if Hakkaku does a front kick, an axe kick, a spinning back fist, a Superman punch, a shin kick, a knee strike or an elbow strike, he indubitably shows his exceptional prowess in Muay Boran, Pradal Serey, and Kajukenbo.
Ginta: Lethwei, Pencak Silat, and Sanda
There is a slim chance that foes will ever triumph whenever Ginta is around to deliver an exceptionally grand program of punches, kicks, elbow strikes, knee strikes, shin kicks, headbutts, and clinches that can form dents on durably hard objects as well as the overall skeletal structure. Neither huge opponents nor more skilled foes would be able to escape from Ginta’s deadly Superman punches, headbutts, knee strikes, elbow strikes, cross punches, knee kicks, and front kicks plus his skills in disarming all of his foes. Therefore, his expertise in Lethwei, Pencak Silat, and Sanda has shaped him up to be a dynamic fighter.
Ayame: Hapkido, Koppojutsu, and Krav Maga
Aggression, confidence, determination, dedication, fierceness, fearlessness, and valour are the building blocks of what define Ayame as a martial artist, a warrior, and an overall person. She fights not to show off but to protect and serve those she considers nearest and dearest to her. Every powerfully accurate move she makes is evidenced through her uppercuts, jabs, cross punches, reverse punches, spinning backfists, spinning back kicks, joint locks, and takedowns which are proven to reduce bones to dust. In fact, Ayame has used her moves in Kickboxing and Boxing to further bolster her attacks in Hapkido, Koppojutsu, and Krav Maga.
Shunran: Shaolin Kung Fu, Savate, and Systema
Wrapping surprises, tricks, lethal attacks, ferocity, cooperation, determination, and tactics up into a pretty package laced in silk and scented with cherry blossoms is Shunran who can prove herself to be a clever, conscientious, agile, and graceful combatant. Her main attacks involve kicks, tricking, punching, elbow strikes, knee strikes, spinning, and takedowns which are strong enough to knock her enemies down, especially where her double flying kicks, spinning backfists, butterfly kicks, and split kicks are concerned. No doubt that she combines strength, stealth, stamina and speed in Sohaolin Kung Fu, Savate, and Systema really well.
When encountering these seven Yokai martial artists implementing these deadly martial arts, given that these are what define them, it is always best to be mindful of the damage they can do, especially if their enemies dare let alone deign to underestimate them. Regardless if Sesshoumaru throws a roundhouse kick and a takedown, Shuran a piledriver and a bearhug, Inuyasha a Superman punch and an axe kick, Hakkaku a headbutt and an elbow strike, Ginta a knee strike and a shin kick, Ayame a left hook and a right jab, and/or Shunran a flying double kick and a spinning backfist, it is best to never be at their bad sides unless you want to see lacerations, trauma, and bruises all over your body.
I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, stay safe, and train hard and well, everybody.
