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 talk about the seven martial arts that Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran specialise in the most as well as what type of fighter best identifies each of them in terms of their personalities, martial arts, capabilities, and range as fighters.
 
I have been testing the proverbial waters of The Splendid Seven’s undeniable skills as martial artists as well as categorise which martial art perfectly captures them. In fact, I can never get enough of Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran joining together as a family of super strong and powerfully potent Yokai martial artists. It has been really fun researching on the various martial arts, although given some of my recent posts revolving around these seven Yokai martial artists, the choices could be better in terms of varying their skills. This is attributed to the various martial arts documentaries, YouTube videos, blog posts, let’s plays of fighting games specifically Street Fighter and Tekken, and reading about the various martial arts and even hybrid martial arts which I thought could perfectly and accurately fit each Splendid Seven member. From there, I have been enjoying the process of fitting each martial art to each Yokai combatant with a lot of glee.
 
It is true that strength comes in numbers, and these seven Yokai martial artists demonstrate that motto exceedingly well. Whether it is Sesshoumaru’s and Inuyasha’s complete program of strikes, grapples, and clinches; Shuran’s devastating submission holds and chokeholds, Hakkaku’s and Ginta’s excruciating headbutts, elbow strikes, shin kicks, and knee strikes; Ayame’s mighty punches, furious kicks, and dominating takedowns or Shunran’s flashy kicks and rapid strikes, spectators can always these seven to be in constant action, especially when they put their strengths together and emerge as the victors. Where their seven martial arts are concerned, I shall be, as usual, judging them by their overall lethalness. However, since this is Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran we are talking about, what they can accomplish would be considered as lethal to the ill-prepared body.
 
With that said, let us get in gear, arm ourselves with courage and strength for some memorable bouts, and step in that arena for a bloody good time, especially if the main attraction is seeing Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran whoop some opponent butt. Osu! Hajime!
 
Sesshoumaru: A Mightily Honourable Vanquisher Steeped in Tradition
All the world’s strength, power, speed, deadliness, accuracy, timing, and balance are meaningless without tradition, discipline, honour, brotherhood, and respect. That has always been Sesshoumaru’s motto ever since he was a little child, considering that he, his father, his mother, and his younger brother Inuyasha have been making the martial arts their way of life. Through Sesshoumaru’s mastery of punching, blocking, kicking, striking, grappling, joint locks, and takedowns, he has been eager to learn different skills and to keep on growing as a martial artist while never besmirching his family, his code of honour, and his warrior ethics.

Shuran: A Frighteningly Powerful Executioner Steeped in Fortitude
Brute strength, an intimidating presence, and heaps of aggression are the hallmarks that define Shuran as not only one of the strongest wrestlers in Japan but also the world. No opponents are too huge, too strong or too powerful to make him submit. No colosseum is too legendary to contain this powerful beast of a hulking panther Yokai grappler. Not even Vince McMahon and all of WWE would be so brazen to mess with Shuran because he can pulverise his opponents to pieces with his piledrivers, bearhugs, Boston Crabs, and camel clutches.

Inuyasha: A Brutally Ferocious Champion Steeped in Lethalness
Opponents, marauders, and plunderers better love the sight of their own blood when Inuyasha launches his series of uppercuts, jabs, reverse punches, spinning axe kicks, spinning back kicks, piledrivers, and submission holds with a sadistic smile on his face because he is all muscles, grit, fury, and brutality in his attacks and holds absolutely nothing back. Just like his older brother Sesshoumaru, he has also been thoroughly ingrained in the martial arts ever since he was a child, as it runs in the family. Therefore, Inuyasha trains, fights, stands tall, and roars like a veritable champion should, and he does so with raw muscular power and bravado.

Hakkaku: A Potently Radioactive Skirmisher Steeped in Stamina
Combat moves as quick as lightning, limbs as strong as steel, and strikes as hard as stones best describe Hakkaku of what he is capable of as a fighter and as a person. Whenever he steps into the arena, spectators know fully well that Hakkaku is more than capable of delivering violently bone-crushing knee strikes, shin kicks, headbutts, elbow strikes, punches, kicks, and clinches. Opponents better prepare themselves when Hakkaku comes with the clinch, for he can release a grand repertory of strikes that will leave them bleeding profusely. Armed with loads of speed, strength, stamina, and stealth, Hakkaku never ever disappoints.

Ginta: A Robustly Tenacious Defender Steeped in Confidence
Charisma, tenacity, and confidence merge superbly with mighty punches, flashing kicks, blinding strikes, and paralysing takedowns to make Ginta the exceptional combatant he is. Once Ginta enters the ring, he would have a great time with his opponents because, although he is meant to beat them into submission, his brilliant sportsmanship shines more brightly than the spotlights. Ginta is the type of combatant who never holds back even when his opponents knock down hard. Every time they do so, he would bounce back with clinches and strikes harder than what they could ever accomplish and deliver his strikes with brutal force.

Ayame: A Victoriously Determined Gladiator Steeped in Dedication
Wearing dedication, determination, valour, stamina, strength, toughness, and fortitude like gold badges of honour is Ayame whose uppercuts, hooks, jabs, cross punches, reverse punches, axe kicks, and flash kicks are considered legendary to fight fans all over the world. Ayame’s punches, kicks, and takedowns are powerful enough to destroy huge concrete slabs which can also do as much damage to her opponents’ skeletal structure if they underestimate her abilities as a warrior. The grit on Ayame’s teeth, the power in her fists, and the leverage she provides as an indubitably formidable fighter are enough to make her enemies tremble.

Shunran: A Triumphantly Bodacious Vindicator Steeped in Attitude
Painful punishment and formidable fortitude never looked this elegant like a princess, smelled this fragrant like cherry blossoms, and felt so deceptively soft like silk unless the challenger concerned is Shunran. She is a fighter who bears the label of being wary of the ones who look nice and pretty because she can throw a huge array of spinning backfists, elbow strikes, front punches, knee strikes, shin kicks, butterfly kicks, and tricking to virtually incapacitate her opponents and make them fall on their knees in sheer terror. Shunran is her opponents’ worst nightmare thanks to her blindingly accurate power, speed, and agility.
