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 specializing in the martial arts they do. It is often said that martial artists need to thrive with various fighting styles to attain the full gamut of offensive and defensive attacks, as one fighting style is never enough to make them grow as combatants, let alone as people. After all, one martial art cannot dominate over the other, for martial arts need to work together in synergy and effectivity. This is where my favorite septet of Yokai martial artists come in to prove that they are not one-trick ponies at all and, based on the seven martial arts I have given to them and more, can adapt to any and every martial art they do. This even gets to the point where I have formulated names for the hybrid mixed martial arts Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran do based on their martial arts backgrounds, personalities, signature attacks, and range of fighting styles they can muster. With that said, sit tight and get ready to kick opponents’ butts with the hybrid mixed martial arts I have in store for Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran.
 
Sesshoumaru: Ultimate Pride Federation Combat
Sesshoumaru’s extraordinary feat in combining Mixed Martial Arts, Shootfighting, Pancrase, Shooto, Luta Livre Esportiva, Luta Combate, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu into his own fighting style makes him one of the mightiest mixed martial artists that Pride and UFC have ever witnessed. His ground and pounds, liver punches, and uppercuts are enough to make his opponents suffer a deep concussion. Sesshoumaru can also deliver paralyzing low kicks to ensure that his opponents remain demobilized and numb. Finally, his grappling work makes it clear that his armbars, chokeholds, and leglocks can put his opponents into a comatose state.
 
Shuran: Volcanic Hell in a Cell Pro Wrestling
Shuran holds nothing back when he combines the large-and-in-charge showmanship of Professional Wrestling and Lucha Libre, the brutality of Hardcore Wrestling, and the various wrestling styles including Mongolian Wrestling, Pehlwani, Turkish Oil Wrestling, and Ssireum and uses them to become a fearsome combatant who has his eyes on that huge golden belt. When opponents are brought into WWE’s Hell in a Cell, Shuran executes and slaughters them with his pulverizing bearhugs, piledrivers, sharpshooters, torture racks, full Nelsons, German suplexes, and suplex power slams, thus shattering and reducing them to cold, lifeless corpses.
 
Inuyasha: Total Olympian Titan Power
Inuyasha owns the power of the Greek gods, the ferociousness of the Russian wrestlers, the strength of the Hawaiian chiefs, and the toughness of Brazilian combatants thanks to his combination of Pankration, Combat Sambo, Sport Sambo, Vale Tudo, Kapu Kuialua, Shoot Wrestling, and Shoot Boxing. He feels compelled to destroy his opponents with ruthless abandon, as evidenced by his brain-shattering double axe handles and hammer fists, bone-damaging jabs, Superman punches, and hooks; and lethal tracheal grip chokes and rear naked chokes. His strong combat prowess could make even Heracles and Kamehameha envious.
 
Hakkaku: Ferocious Tiger Slashing Claws
Hakkaku has no time to rest in his grand journey as a fighter when he combines Thailand’s limb-numbing strikes and clinches in Muay Boran, Muay Lerdrit, Muay Chaiya, and Muay Thai and the Philippines’ quick strikes and brutal grapples in Panantukan, Yaw-Yan, and Buno. Once he uses his strikes, clinches, takedowns, and the occasional grapples, Hakkaku becomes an unstoppable force of nature through his overpowering overhand punches, elbow strikes, elbow slashes, shin kicks, spinning elbow strikes, flying knee strikes, and knee bombs, thus kicking his attacks into overdrive to give his opponents the greatest fight they have had.
 
Ginta: Voracious Leopard Stampeding Hinds
Ginta can never slack off on his duties as a combatant when he challenges himself by combining Myanmar’s paralyzing strikes, clinches, grapples, and quick movements in Lethwei, Bando, Naban, and Pongyi Thaing and Cambodia’s precise and pulverizing attacks in Bokator, Pradal Serey, and Baok Cham Bab. As Ginta’s myriad of strikes, clinches, takedowns, and grapples are his main weapons of mass destruction, he never relents when he delivers his punishing thrusting headbutts, side headbutts, spinning backfists, cross punches, flying elbow strikes, jumping knee strikes, and push kicks to decimate his opponents to shreds.
 
Ayame: The Way of All Furious Hands, Joints, Limbs, and Feet
Ayame finds passion and enthusiasm in the Korean martial arts of Taekwondo, Hapkido, Yongmudo, Kuk Sool Won, Tang Soo Do, Hwa Rang Do, and Taekkyeon when it comes to combining rapid movements and fierce fortitude, thus making every move she makes run at lightspeed. Ayame’s determination and fearlessness are evidenced in her blazing reverse punches, knife-hand strikes, palm heel strikes, roundhouse kicks, spinning back kicks, spinning axe kicks, and ridge-hand strikes that can make her opponents squirm and retreat in a rush complete with broken bones, torn ligaments, smashed skulls and obliterated joints.
 
Shunran: Crouching and Pouncing Multi-Animal-Style Kung Fu
Shunran is more than happy to emulate every animal style from the crane to the leopard to the snake in the Chinese martial arts of Shaolin Kung Fu, Northern Praying Mantis Kung Fu, White Crane Style Kung Fu, Monkey Kung Fu, Baguazhang, Wushu, and Bajuquan, thus combining intimidating ferociousness with accurate speed. Shunran’s close affinity with animals, especially the crane, the tiger, the snake, and the monkey, are reflected in her leopard blows, finger strikes, palm strikes, nerve strikes, tornado kicks, double flying kicks, and split kicks, thus targeting her opponents’ pressure points to make them crash and burn.
 
There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. The Splendid Seven’s hybrid mixed martial arts is based on the seven signature martial arts I have given them. As they combine all seven signature martial arts into their own style, it becomes intrinsically clear that every martial arts style must work together in synergy and harmony, and one cannot live without the other. It would also be nice to know if you have been just as inspired to partake in the martial arts or have practiced one. Please let me know in the comments below. Until then, I wish you well on your journey. Take care and stay healthy everybody.
