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 four chief martial arts Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran specialise in the most.
 
When you are a family of seven powerful Yokai warriors like Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran, you are guaranteed to live, breathe, and make the martial arts as well as the codes of siblinghood, cooperation, dedication, discipline, self-respect, respect, attitude, and confidence ways of life. When it comes to the martial arts these seven powerful Yokai warriors do, they do not limit themselves to one they do but acclimatise themselves with other ones they do and stick to them as greatly as they can. Therefore, out of the seven martial arts Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran do, I decided to go with four because they can be easily judged on how lethally deadly and mortally powerful each of them is, especially when these are practiced by these seven martial artists. Furthermore, these are the ones that truly define them not only based on their personalities and attitudes but also the fact that I have been immersing myself into martial arts documentaries, fighting games, anything and everything related to martial arts tournaments, and a whole bevy martial arts YouTube channels that I have been watching. With that said, let us get these bouts started with the four signature martial arts that define The Splendid Seven. Osu. Hajime.
 
Sesshoumaru: The Subduing Obliterator
Experience, perseverance, discipline, and fortitude are the hallmarks which define Sesshoumaru as an honourable combatant. Fledgling fighters aspire to emulate his focused fortitude, and opponents would quake at their knees whenever they are faced with him. Sesshoumaru has a whole bunch of attacks available at his disposals such as his powerful jabs, his lightning-fast kicks, his overpowering submission holds, and his vicious takedowns. Even more worthy of his experience as a martial artist is how he observes proper dojo etiquette and makes his trademark routines of Kihon, Kata, and Kumite his way of life.
  1. Shotokan Karate – Spear-hand strikes, roundhouse kicks, and jabs are his specialties.
  2. Brazilian Jujitsu – Anybody who finds themselves fighting Sesshoumaru could attest that his submission holds, chokeholds, and arm bars are weapons of mass destruction.
  3. Judo – Whenever Sesshoumaru grabs his opponents by the collar, he would not hesitate to step up his takedowns, throws, and the occasional brutal strike to the body.
  4. Taekwondo – He revels in tornado kicks, axe kicks, straight punches, and elbow and knee strikes which are propelled by heaps of precision, power, and balanced timing.
 
Shuran: The Rampaging Pulveriser
The sound of crushing bones, breaking joints, squishing flesh, and thunderous thuds can only mean one thing. It is none other than Shuran implementing his trademark submission holds, piledrivers, Boston Crabs, chokeholds, arm bars, bearhugs, and double axe-handles to thoroughly destroy his opponents and take home the golden champion’s belt. There is no arena let alone colosseum big enough to contain this imposingly huge wrestler who is known to inflict paralysing fear upon paralysing fear on his foes. Underneath all that brutality is a wrestler who never wants to rest on his laurels and constantly strives to improve every day.
  1. Combat Sambo – Throws, holds, chokes, and locks with great brutality are his fortes.
  2. Vale Tudo – To say that Shuran is adept in implementing ground and pound attacks and ground attacks in general is such an understatement, as he is the master of this attack.
  3. Luta Livre – When opponents find themselves in Shuran’s chokeholds, arm bars, necklocks, and leglocks, it is lights out for them, and escape is out of the question.
  4. Professional Wrestling – WWE, Lucha Libre, TNA, and other international wrestling federations are great arenas for Shuran to demonstrate his piledrivers and suplexes.
 
Inuyasha: The Bloody Annihilator
Muscles of steel, fists of iron, skeletal structure of stone, and fighting prowess of gold are the attributes that best illustrate Inuyasha as a fighter and as an individual. Throw him in an arena or in a cage, and Inuyasha would unleash a series of mighty uppercuts, Superman punches, jabs, hooks, axe kicks, roundhouse kicks, submission holds, joint locks, throws, piledrivers, and chokeholds to his opponents. They best be careful when he gets close to them with a scary grin on his face because he revels in blood-drenched close-range combat. He is a warrior who loves to train every day and is always pumped up for the next round.
  1. Mixed Martial Arts – Hooks, jabs, ground and pounds, and chokeholds are his metiers.
  2. Pankration – Expert Pankratiasts better love the sight of their own blood when Inuyasha unleashes his explosive uppercuts, jabs, roundhouse kicks, and piledrivers.
  3. Kapu Kuialua – Should invaders attempt to conquer Inuyasha, he would charge at them with ground and pounds, soccer kicks, double axe handles, throws, and joint locks.
  4. Shootfighting – Inuyasha loves launching his Superman punches, axe kicks, suplexes, and strangleholds at his opponents while roaring at them and bathing in their blood.
 
Hakkaku: The Voracious Bludgeoner
Metal elbows, a rock-hard head, shins of stone, and iron knees are what Hakkaku has in spades as his main weapons, especially when he propels them with his thunderous leverage, lightning speed, and titanium will. No matter how huge Hakkaku’s opponents are or how skilled they are in combat, he would easily out-manoeuvre them with his blinding headbutts, terrifying elbow strikes, devastating knee strikes, powerful reverse punches, and paralysing shin kicks, thus bludgeoning them to smithereens. Devastation to his opponents aside, Hakkaku gets enthusiastic whenever he encounters new challengers to combat with.
  1. Muay Boran – Headbutts, elbow and knee strikes, and shin kicks are his strongholds.
  2. Panantukan – Bolo punches to the face caused by Hakkaku could be potentially damaging, thus leading to long-term facial disfigurement and broken facial bones.
  3. Pradal Serey – In the occasion that opponents dare to disorientate Hakkaku with their attacks, he would bounce back with his powerful thrust kicks, hooks, and elbow strikes.
  4. Kajukenbo – Crooks, marauders, and vandals best think more than twice when messing with Hakkaku because his takedowns, hip throws, and uppercuts are truly excruciating.
 
Ginta: The Wild Crusher
Radioactive stamina, deadly stealth, abundant ferocity, and vitriolic willpower are all wrapped up in a charismatically charming combatant in Ginta. This is especially true when he unleashes his knee strikes, elbow strikes, shin kicks, headbutts, uppercuts, roundhouse kicks, and axe kicks on his opponents. All of Ginta’s attacks are leveraged by his quick speed, relentless amounts of power, precise timing, and abundant balance in his movements, and the sheer physical and mental devastation he can cause to his opponents. Furthermore, Ginta has sufficient passion and discipline to achieve his goals as a fighter and as an overall person.
  1. Lethwei – Superman punches, headbutts, shin kicks, and clinches are his bastions.
  2. Pencak Silat – Attackers who arm themselves with knives and daggers would be easily disarmed by Ginta, and he will incapacitate them with palm strikes and hooks galore.
  3. Jeet Kune Do – When opponents deign to overpower Ginta, he would quickly and easily disorient them with his roundhouse kicks, uppercuts, backfists, and knife hand strikes.
  4. Sanda – All of China’s emperors, kings, princes, and fight promoters would revel at Ginta’s combat prowess thanks to his spinning axe kicks, uppercuts, and elbow strikes.
 
Ayame: The Mighty Decimator
Furious fists, fleet feet, laudable leverage, and super strength are what constitute Ayame as a formidably fearsome fighter who never has surrender as her choice of lexemes in her vocabulary. She can use her formidable hands of fury to launch some serious uppercuts, jabs, hooks, reverse punches, backfists, Superman punches, and palm strikes. She can even make her heels, balls of the foot, and insteps weapons of mass destruction through her roundhouse kicks, front kicks, and spinning back kicks. Plus, her lethal submission holds are exemplary. Ayame’s dedicated determination drive her to achieve higher goals crowned with excellence.
  1. Hapkido – Joint locks, hip throws, chokeholds, and palm strikes are her strong points.
  2. Yongmudo – Every opponent who fights Ayame better pray profusely because she would gladly unleash her stomach throws, jabs, front kicks, and elbow strikes on them.
  3. Koppojutsu – If assassins try to dispose of Ayame, she will counter their attacks with her ground and pounds, roundhouse kicks, joint manipulations, and knee strikes.
  4. Boxing – There is no opponent too strong or too fast for Ayame to launch her collateral damage-causing uppercuts, Superman punches, reverse punches, and front punches.
 
Shunran: The Shrewd Eliminator
The speed of light, the agility of a gazelle, the power of a tiger, and the stamina of an Amazon warrior are traits that Shunran has in order to rise above the competition as a crafty and courageous combatant. Every palm strike, knife-hand strike, spear-hand strike, spinning backfist, jab, hook, and front punch Shunran has can cause a great deal of collateral damage to her opponents. The same thing can be said about her blinding split kicks, butterfly kicks, roundhouse kicks, corkscrew kicks, flash kicks, flip kicks, and low kicks. Shunran not only takes great advantage of her fists and feet but also her strong moral code as a true warrior.
  1. Shaolin Kung Fu – Jabs, flying kicks, finger strikes, and elbow strikers are her long suits.
  2. Northern Praying Mantis Kung Fu – Warriors better prepare themselves, for Shunran can release her leopard blows, knife-hand strikes, thrust kicks, and spear-hand strikes.
  3. Baguazhang – Suppose that violators will themselves to do Shunran in, but they would be unlucky, as her foot sweeps, knee wheels, hooks, and knee strikes can end them.
  4. Savate – Regardless of Shunran’s opponents being stronger and faster than her, she can throw uppercuts, roundhouse kicks, spinning back kicks, and axe kicks with glee.
